Hobo Bag Finished

A UFO that had been hanging around for months got finished this week! Yippee! I used Tula Pinks fabric line "Nightshade". The first time I saw Tula's pirate girl all I could see was my oldest daughter when she was little. She really wanted to be a pirate or a ninja turtle. Now, at 27 she is an independent beautiful woman living in NY state. So maybe she will think of me when she uses this to carry her groceries. It is quite big, my mother said big bags like this where called "hobo bags" in the 60's.

Above is the inside, Nightshade Apothecary in Vapor, with two big pockets, Nightshade Spider Blossom in Vapor.

Below is the back! I used Nightshade Raven Lace on the strap and opening. Nightshade Storm Clouds for the back and front.

This is the appliquéd front of Netunia Von Black from Nightshade Coven in Vapor. The model is Joyce my very helpful Mom! Who said the bag could just stay here! I packed it up and will mail it tomorrow with my daughter's other Christmas gifts. This is only the second time in her life she hasn't been home for Christmas! Hopefully next year she will be able to visit.

My Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day is HERE . There is still time to enter!
