Slouchy Little Hobo Bag

With the black market behind me it is time to get creative....

I had some fabric which i meant to make myself a coat but have decided it would look kind of cool as a bag, so the  Slouchy Little Hobo Bag has been created....

You can either wear you hobo short or sling it over with the longer length strap, the strap is a continuous circle through the reinforced ends of the bag.

The inside of the hobo bag is lined with black shantung; there is also a pocket inside the bag

Bag dimensions and other stuff

Colours: Charcoal, Black Shantung Lining
Measurements: Width=flattened 17”, Bag Height = 18”, Bag Overall Height including strap =26”, strap extended 34"
Pockets on outside and inside of the bag

A few more Black Market ideas..

A few more sewing hours and some more Black Market ideas...

and a customer request.....

 Must get back to it.... only a few days holidays left... really not looking forward to going back to work...

Been to Porland .....

Well i spent the weekend in Portland, was not sure what to expect but i must so i had a rather excellent time.
One of the highlights would have to be the Maremma dogs, they are used to guard a colony of nesting gannet birds at Point Danger near Portland, however i think the dogs must get a bit lonely....but a beautiful dog....below are some of the photos i took.
