August: Fringed Hobo

Like I told you last week, Susan from Living with Punks will be running the show this month, but I wanted to kick things off quick before I let her take over. Like I mentioned before, this month we'll be working on the Fringed Hobo Bag.


We've officially moved into the "advanced" portion of the book, but don't let that scare you! Remember, we still have yet to come across a pattern that has been harder than the very first "easy" Cosmo Bag! :)

If you're not crazy about the fringe, I've already seen some great versions out there without the fringe, or with other types of trim. You've got plenty of options if tassels aren't your thing!


This month's giveaway is sponsored by Marci from Marci Girl Designs. Marci has a great Etsy shop with lots of beautiful & unique items. I'll share more about the giveaway as the month goes on.

Even though this isn't my favorite bag in the book, I'm almost looking forward to seeing all your bags even more than normal since I know your talent can change my view of this pattern!

Until next time...


  1. Really? Where are the non-fringed versions? I've only seen two people so far who've made it at all. I don't think I'm far enough into the sewing community yet :)

  2. Oh I have to hold my hand up and say I'm going for a non-fringed one, really, tassels, pompoms and the like are NOT me lol Actually, I'm not sure handbags are either, but I'm trying to embrace it ;o)


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
