It has been way too long since our last sew along.
So, I decided we should have one..
I am thinking of the piping-hot hobo pattern from Lisa Lam's The Bag Making Bible.
The last bag I made from this book (which was also a sew along I put together) was a Reversible Bucket Bag (FREE pdf). We had so much fun and learn a lot along the way.
What do you think? Any of you interested to join in the fun?
