Sheena Slouchy Hobo Bag

A customer has ordered a bag from me, and while I'm very familiar with the pattern designer Swoon ( and ADORE the way they are written, I haven't made this particular pattern just yet. (Absolutely no idea why I've not made Sheena yet - it's a FAB!! pattern!). So, I decided to do a 'quick' practice bag - just in case I mess up royally! lol! Well, you never know really.
And I think it came out quite well. It's made from black polycotton drill, and an upholstery fabric with orange cat faces. Both side are mirrored and it has an adjustable strap do can be carried cross body, or shortened to whatever length you want. I used orange top stitching, which is a bit brighter than in the pics. ;) The inside is a cream cotton with a large divided slip pocket, and a zip pocket too. It's been interfaced with fusible fleece to give it some body, so is still a little slouchy, but not totally limp.
