I decided to try my hand at making a hobo bag - I was so happy with how the first one turned out I immediately cut fabric for three more - I've got two of the new ones sewn already - I just need to finish the fourth one which is made from silk.

Anyhow....for the first bag - I had these amazing vintage indigo kasuri pieces that I had been straining my brain trying to work out what to make with them.  I never wear or use dark blues - so it was a challenge.  It finally hit me that a hobo bag would be the pefect bag style to show off the fantastic fabric.



I used a beautiful soft vintage maroon cotton that used to be lining of a kimono as the lining.  I thought the maroon complimented the indigo perfectly:




The second one I made was from indigo yukata cotton with Japanese style butterflies:



The lining was a peachy-orange vintage cotton - previously the lining of a kimono:




The third one I made has five different juban (under-kimono) fabrics in pinks and blues:

Front:


Back:


The lining was a vibrant vintage pink cotton:

Mel-my-issa - Thank you!  I did make the pattern myself.  I did some research on hobo bag shapes and just came up with a shape I prefered myself.

Ellisa - Aw - thank you, yet again! <3

craftynicole14 - Thank-you!  I drafted my own pattern for these...so I guess you can say I winged it in a sense Tongue

tarks - Thank you!  I get my fabric direct from Japan for most of the part.

justxlove haha!  You are too cute, seriously.  I mean cute in a kick you in the face sort of way though ;P

Cat-n-Caboodle - Thank you!  Although the third one is way to bright for me to consider using - I am absolutely in love with the fabrics in it :]

Alexa_Angel - Thank you! <3

Arrhythmia - Thank you again!
