fab fabric I had found - a plaid/madras print. I have been contemplating what to do with it. Today, I decided - a hobo purse! I actually only used 1/3 of the yard I had bought, so I have plenty left for another project. I think I might make Pey a Christmas dress out of it.
I just laid the bag on the fabric, cut a shape and went to work ;) (If you want a tutorial, click here!) I used an old, thick, fleecy baby blanket for the lining (to make it wintery) and added a pocket on the front and one on the inside. I also added rosettes to the pocket. I used the madras print to also make a bias tape for the sides.

Straps attached to the sides
This took me about an hour total to make! So simple, and I love it. I (almost) can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can use it!
