The Hobo - new sewing project

Hey guys and gals.....
Okay, maybe only one guy - the hubs! lol!  I'd like to thank you all for stopping by each time I have something new to share with you, also thank you for all of the lovely comments!  My goal is to share what I've made with you all and that you all will like it.  Yes, I did make this and everything else that I've posted about and said I made.  
I say this because I received a couple of emails regarding my blue tote bag - saying that it was impossible to make it look that perfect and not be professionally made (um what does that even mean, lol) or this looked like a bag that so-in-so store sells.  I didn't even tell the hubs, I just read them and deleted them.  Honestly why do people have to be rude or say negative things. First of all many stores sell many different kinds of tote bags or purses, I've never said I was the inventor of the very 1st tote bags.  I stated that I made "this" blue one.  Hello, if you have the basic skills in sewing anyone can sew a simple tote bag.  The hubs can tell you, I'm always in my craft room making something...if its not sewing, its sketching or crafting . 

Well....Enough of the negative-nancy!
I'm happy to show you the new Hobo bag I made. 
This bag is reversible....but I only put a pocket on the "inside". It does look cute either way.
I sewed in a mini pocket as well. Can be used for a cell phone, lip gloss, a compact or whatever you want to put in it.
Here is a close up of the fabric....I absolutely love it!  You can also see one side of my tag.  
It says FIFI MADE THIS.
Here is the other side of the tag.  I say if you made it tag it!
I absolutely loved this fabric.

This bag was a gift for my sister-in-laws birthday! I'm happy to say she loved it!
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit!! Leave comments to let me know what you think.  (",)

    1. Thanks for stopping by!! Glad you like it!


      Sometimes! I'm an eyeballing sewer...lol! If I see it I will try it. On this bag I drew out a pattern. But I'm still tweaking it a bit...I like "big" bags. And this bag was not as big as I'd want it.

  18. It looks awesome. And you're right, sewing a tote isn't exactly rocket science (although it does take a special talent) and no one has a monopoly on them.
