    supasimple hobo (bag)

    I'll post a picture as soon as i find my digicam (so probably never), but I designed and made a supasimple hobo bag as my first ever sewing project (yay).

    1. make a pattern like figure A.
    2. fold your fabric into quarters, so it looks like figure b.
    3. cut out your fabric and lining (optional, of course, we like ragged). when unfolded, they should resemble figure C.
    4. if using lining, sew fabric and lining right sides together (except for a little bit), pull through so that right sides are facing out.
    5. sew side seams together (right sides together), as in figure D.
    6. pull bottom so that original side seams are in front and back (strap should now reach from side to side). sew bottom either straight or curved, depending on how slouchy you like your hobo.
    7. pull right side out and MARVEL!

    Hehe, I feel so smart, saying "figure" and such. Sorry if the directions are a bit muddled, but I'd be happy to clarify if you have any questions.

    For my bag, I used fabric from a pseudo-burberry pair of pajama pants and a light blue floral calico, but any combination would work.

    This was a fun/easy/useful project, and I look forward to making a sequined version! So have fun, y'all.
