Acutally it didn't take me tooooo long to finish this one, just a lot of procrastinating!

What was so difficult about this bag??? So much SEWING! The strap/gusset was knit in one long piece and had to be seamed up the middle to make a tube. It then had to be sewn to the front and back panels to form the bag. An i-cord trim was sewn around the flap after the purse was sewn together.

All in all, a lot of sewing but well worth it, I love the way it came out. Horn button purchased at Joann's, lined with a funky bubbly floral pattern cotton fabric from eBay.

Instead of the big messenger bag, I wanted a hobo style bag. The bag itself is supposed to measure 18 inches across, but I held two strands of Bernat Satin together to make it sturdy and it ended up being 13" x 8". I made the strap shorter to compensate.

This bag is from Vogue Knitting on the Go: Bags & Backpacks.

Have a look!

....And the addition of the pic with me so you can see how big it is. And chittybangbang, I bought the fabric on eBay, it's by Michael Miller or similar.

That is so pretty!  So many cables scare me, though.  I just don't have the patience to practice them . . .

can you take a picture of it on your (or someone's!) shoulder for an idea of the size in relation to a person?
