The last time I sewed was almost 7 years ago. I made coordinating crib bumpers, crib skirts and crib blankets for my son and daughter. I made them from scratch, no pattern needed! I finally got back into sewing and decided to make a fall hobo bag from a pattern...boy do I prefer making it up as I go, but non-the-less I came to the finish line. So loving the bold yellow lining. Can't wait to use my new bag and look forward to completing a dress for my daughter's birthday!
