Emily's Pick of the Week

Happy Friday Everyone! Spring has sprung here at 1154 LILL Studio, so I thought I would share some of our darling spring fabrics with you this week. If you're thinking of designing a new bag for spring/summer, we have tons of bright new fabrics to brighten your day! We also sell our fabric by the yard if you're thinking about a crafty project this spring. These are some of my favorite new fabrics:
From left to right, the fabric names are Cocoa Sprigs, Spring Fling, Apricot Blossom, Frida's Flowers, Lime Leaves and Umbrella Shade. All six of these fabrics are sure to add sunshine to your day! What fabrics do you love? Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend. Emily

Meet Nikki!

Thanks to some great feedback from our Facebook fans, we have seen a large request for a smaller version of HADLEY. LILL is proud and happy to introduce the next addition to our custom handbag line, NIKKI! Our new “little sister” version of HADLEY and just as stylish. Equipped with cool hardware and an interior zipper pocket, the petite version of HADLEY is still roomy enough to tote all your everyday essentials.

Now, meet the name behind the bag – Nikki!
Nikki is the sister of Adrienne S. – Senior Fabric Associate.

Nikki recently tied the knot to her true love Lou on March 14th.
She was kind enough to share some photos of her special day with us. As you can see, she is stylish and sweet just like the bag named after her.
