Who am I kidding, I knew I'd make her something. Crochet another scarf? It's a sure hit, and she loves a handmade scarf. (or 2, or 10). But another one? Hmmmm...
and then it hit me. I should make her the fringed hobo bag from Amy Butler's Style Stitches book I've been meaning to try for-EVER! Perfect!
I would never have guessed how many cut pieces would go into making a bag! Never! If I remember right, this thing has about 30 pieces - including the outer fabric, lining, and all of the interfacing. Whew!!! Good thing I didn't figure that out until I had already cut the "hobo" shape out of my Melody Miller fabric, or I might have just given up in cutting despair. But no, I caried on.
So glad I did!!!
Want to see it?!!!
And here's the little zippered pouch that coordinates with it...
I love it! I hope she does too. Happy Birthday Liz!!!
