k so this was a test run. i made the pattern up myself so it's still a little rough around the edges. the part where the purse and the strap are sewn is miscalculated so the strap is skinnier than the purse at that area...also i have to find a way to add an interior lining ...hmm... anyway, i love the shape. i've been trying to make one like this for awhile now and was afraid to use any fabric and actually mess up on it...but had this left over green to try it out. unfortunately this purse doesn't and probably wont have lining.

anyway, i just wanted to share...if any of you have any suggestions to make it better please let me know!

Very cute idea! I love that style of bag, it's really comfy to carry and I feel like it's secure because of the way it tucks under your arm.

Thats beautiful!!!!

If this makes sense, I'm not feeling the pleats.. I don't think theyre pleatted enough  Huh wow I have a disasterous time explaining myself. The flower on the side is sheer perfection. I'm loving the colour as well. What kind of material?

Any hopes of a tutorial in the near future? I would love to make one for my sister.

katecygnar - i agree with the "secure" bit, I love hobos because I keep misplacing my purses, and with hobos, I can feel it under my arm at all times so it isnt out disappearing anywhere  Grin

oooooh that's a really pretty colour, I also like the way it sits. Looks so comfy.

Pinksatin, did you mean the lines of the pleats didn't go far enough down the bag?

Still, looks good, I second the plead for a tutorial.  Grin

i totally get what you are saying. i think it's because the pleats weren't deep enough...like i didnt overlap far enough. i'll try that next time around. ...and as soon as i perfect the purse, i will add a tutorial. thanks for the help!! Cheesy

yay! i remember you talking about wanting to do this bag. it turned out great. i'm sure you'll be able to perfect it now that you've had a try at it.

you could maybe taper the bag at the ends to meet the strap if you really like the strap width.  Huh
