A Hobo Pocketbook
I am really back into my sewing mode again!
Last night I designed a new pattern for a hobo style pocketbook. This bag was just a practice bag. I made the pattern and completed the bag after work last night. It definitely needs some work! The bag isn't deep enough to hold any of my stuff and I think the bottom is too wide. I will be working on getting this pattern right this weekend!
What do you think of the fabric? I wasn't too sure about it at first, but think its kind of cute after the bag was finished. It was fabric that was in my stash which I found at the thrift store a couple of years ago. I really need to use the fabric that I already have, but when I look at it, its just not what I want to make pocketbooks out of! I suppose I should look at the fabric and then decide what to make from it that's suitable for that particular piece of fabric, instead of picking a project first.
