I had a productive Christmas gift-making week. Project 2 was this Diana Hobo bag from ThinkLiz. (Don't be jealous over my awesome display hanger.) What I love about the gal from ThinkLiz is that she is not only a fellow Texan but also a fellow Aggie. Gig 'em! (Btw, the husband just told me that some poll ranked the Aggies 18 in the nation today. Who'd a thunk it?)
Anyway, back to the bag. I found this tutorial pretty easy to follow, especially on the heals of the pleated purse I recently finished. This bag required no darts, a little bit of pleating, and a magnetic snap. (This was my first magnetic snap, and it wasn't hard at all!) This would be a fun 3rd or 4th sewing project to attempt because it's useful, super cute, not difficult, but still requires you to learn a new skill or two.
And my favorite part is actually the inside of the bag where I used Amy Butler's Daily Chain fabric.
If the lucky lady who will receive this bag for Christmas doesn't love it, I will gladly keep it in my closet! :)
