I saw the pear bag on here and said I have to have that bag for our upcoming trip. I bought the owl fabric awhile back but couldn't decide what style of bag I wanted to use it for. The Highbrow Hobo looked just perfect...I can see that I need to add another row of stitching on my bias tape...I was afraid I wouldn't catch it in places so I went rather high up...Hope you like it and thanks to U-handbag and meg for the inspiration! A close up of the fabric just because I love it so much...I also made the bias tape for it...almost did green but in the end the pink won out!

I got it at Hancock's but i have been hoarding it for awhile. I will look for a name on it later for anyone that wants to know what it's called.

If you can find the name of the fabric, I would love to know. It's so cute.

You did a great job on your bag and should be very proud.

It does not have a name but after searching in ebay I see that it comes in Blue (not nearly as pretty) and I also found that there are lots of other fabrics out there I need....I mean want...one ebayer said it was from Royal Fabrics but google did not turn anything similar up so...I will keep looking!

I have this fabric and am saving it for the "Perfect Project"  I would like to have more but I have learned that it was offically discontinued. (That happens everytime I find something I like) It was Item#2701837 Owls with Flowers on Black Cotton Fabric. original price $7.99 a yard.

pixeegrl: What the pattern easy to follow?
Yes, I found it very easy to follow. However, I did my lining differently because I wanted to add the bias around the top of the bag. There are lots of illustrations to follow also! Go for it! It came to a little of $6 with the US conversion. Well worth it!

The pink compliments the owl fabric beautiflly!!

I used this same owl fabric as lining for a purse I crocheted.
