Fall Hobo Bag

I worked on a new design for my new fall pocketbook over the weekend, using as my inspiration a bag that I found in some junk mail from Better Homes and Gardens "American Patchwork" quilting magazine.

My finished bag isn't shaped like the picture, but I did use the idea for the fabric strip placement.



I used the bag the last couple of days and enjoyed it very much.

Love the bag, at least the junk mail was good for something, I didn't notice that on my BHG junk mail. I like the snap, since I'm not a zipper person that would work great for the next bag I make.

Very pretty!

I bought an apron pattern and material last night. I wonder if I will actually get it done. I haven't sewed in ages!
