in the works...


So, I'm finally getting another pattern put together! This is the first sample I've finished so I've still got a bit of work to do. It's a largish hobo style bag with an outer zippered pocket, magnetic snap closure, and an inner single welt pocket. It has a spacious bottom and opens wide so it's easy to find your stuff. For this particular bag, I used Glimma Stripe in Jade and Essex Linen Blend in Steel with a fun yellow zip for contrast.
