I am so excited that I was able to create this hobo bag as my first piece! I took an old wrap skirt that I purchased up in Fort Brag, that never really fit right, and decided to make it into a bag. The fabric is so pretty and I saved it just so i could do something like this. For my first piece on a sewing machine I am so very proud of myself. I was able to put on a zipper and even added a medium-sized pocket on the inside.
Though I made a few mistakes, which I expected, I am so happy that it came out as well as it did, considering I haven’t made anything before with a sewing machine. And I must add, I didn’t use a patten…I kind of found the fabric speaking to me. I am just so excited that I was able to make something pretty awesome.
I went out yesterday to Joanns and found some beautiful pieces of fabric. I can’t wait to get started on them and see where this leads.
