"The Sak" Hobo bag copycat
Here now is the bag I've been talking about, what do you all think? =) I've laboured on it for three days. I still have to sew a lining and put a magnetic closure to it.
The pattern is very easy to follow, but the tightweave stitches require a lot of patience. Moreover, I didnt really like a pink bag, but since I had a lot of pink threads I decided to use it. The project used up 9 1/2 balls of cotton thread size 8, with 3 strands worked together. I got the bag color and flower hang tag idea from The Sak website. And this is where I got the pattern online.
Notes on the pattern: The bottom part was done using a 3mm hook as instructed. I think I would use the 3.5mm hook all throughout the pattern on my next try, as I didnt like the way the bottom was shaped.
