Hobo handbag and fields of Lavender

This bag as been cut out ready to sew for some time, this week I have finally stitched it up.

This was free pattern in issue 12 of  Love Sewing magazine, designed by Susie Dunlop of SusieDDesinges,

The instructions suggest using 5  co-ordinating fat quarters, but I wanted to use some of my scrap box fabric.  I picked out a light blue chambray and a navy chambray, the lining is piece of Sanderson Curtain fabric, which has been in my stash for years.  There are only two pattern pieces, and the instructions clear, although I didn’t use them.

The only changes I made was to use a magnetic fastener, as I didn’t have a twist turn type and I added my usual key ring strap.

This a very easy sew  and if you have not made bags before its a good place to start, why not have go and use up some of your scrap fabric.

As it was such a lovely day, I abandoned the trousers I had planned to sew today, grabbed my new bag and went  to walk at the Lavender fields, at Snowshill.
