When we were travelling in Namibia and Botswana last year I just HAD to stop at the outdoor markets that we saw in some of the towns we passed through, and get myself a few of the beautiful fabrics sold there. I have previously used them to mak cushion covers and tablecloths, but wanted a medium sized casual bag this time. Here's the finished product, which I'm really pleased with. The pattern is a free download called a Hobo Reversible Bag on verypurpleperson.com It's a reversible pattern but I just lined mine with a black shirt from a thrift shop. Easy and fab!
