NO, the month can't be half way over already? Well almost, close enough anyways. Time flies even when you aren't having fun! HaHa. It is that time again to share my fabric choices for the Style Stitches sew along. This month is one of my absolute favorites from the book, the Fringed Hobo Bag. I'm not sure why I like it so much, but I do, I love it, and can't wait to see how it comes together! The picture below is the large version, but I'll be making the smaller version, and hoping that it isn't too huge, but given Amy Butler's track record, I can be pretty sure that it will be quite BIG.
I have chosen two different Echino prints to use on my bag, though I'm not sure which will be the main body, and which will be the yoke, but I am excited to use these fabrics that have been in my stash for quite some time waiting on that perfect project! You will have to tune in for the finished product to see the fringe that I have chosen. It wasn't my first choice, but the price was right, compared to spending an INSANE $10+ a yard on something. It doesn't make any sense to spend more on the darn fringe than you do on the fabric itself. Even with my 40% off coupon, it still cost me more than I was wanting, and that was my second choice!
Not only is this month one of my favorite bags, but it is extra special because I am the giveaway sponsor this month over at My Crafty Crap. All you need to do to enter to win my giveaway goodies, is to make the bag and enter at the end of the month at My Crafty Crap. Simple as that! Want to know what I am giving away? Well go visit Bree right HERE to see the loot! While you are there, make sure to leave her a super sweet comment because she is anxiously awaiting the birth of her first child! Good luck Bree! What are you waiting on...get to working on that bag!

I know, those home decor fringes are so expensive! Mine was $3.49/yd (before the coupon) compared to like $14.99/yd...crazy! I can't wait to see your finished bag!

Ah, so glad I follow this …. I'm looking forward to seeing the bag done. I have that book, and look at it often, but have only made the same thing several times. I love the fabric and can't wait to see what you do!!!!!
