I got another custom order from a friend's sister for a replica of an Old Navy bag you can no longer buy called a Bohemian Hobo Bag. It's massive! I only had a couple of Ebay postings with pictures to reference, so I think I did well in duplicating the effect. She also didn't like the fabrics that they had options for, so this was a totally custom job.

The bag is 19.5" wide, roughly 6" deep, and the straps are 35" long, so it wraps around your body. The straps are 3.5" wide. There's a decorative button at the front, which has a loop from the opposite side that folds over to hold it shut. The bag is fully reversible too!

At first I thought the bag was OMFG way too huge, but it really does feel nice and comfortable when wrapped around. It's awesome for a gym bag or a weekender bag.

The only trouble I had was with the 1/4" binding. It was so small that I had trouble wrapping it around lol Smiley

Great Job!  Wink

That is wonderful.  I can see shopping with that & so many other uses. 

Great job.  I'd love to make one of those.  Thanks for the deminsions.

Yeah it's a really cool bag Smiley I was thinking of actually offering them as something to sell on my site. I can't offer it for the sweatshop prices of Old Navy, but for handmade, people really can't argue.

That looks like a great "take your own snacks to the movies" kinda bag.  Oh wait, that's right, no outside food or drink, I forgot...  ;( 
Great job, it looks awesome!
