It is not easy to take a good picture of a hobo bag. It is not easy to sew on upholstery velvet. But the bag turned out OK, and M says it only has to survive 5 trips to the Tower of Terror at Disneyland. I think I am done sewing heavy thick stuff that you have to struggle to force through the machine for awhile, so now I will go back to making blouses and aprons.
The batik I used for the lining was easy to work with. I wasn’t very pleased with the pattern instructions, though. There were several places where they left you confused as if there were a whole section of instructions missing. The “let’s gloss over this part” school of instruction writing.
Well, cross that one off my list, and on to better things!
