Gold Hobo Bag

Okay, okay, I know it's not a knit item. But, I've been feeling the need for sewing-machine craftiness lately, so I decided to try and sew some bags. I've seen these really trendy metallic hobo bags EVERYWHERE lately, so I thought I'd try one of them. Here was my result:

I'm actually pretty impressed that I didn't mess it up. It has a functioning zipper and everything. I warmed up with some other bags - one easier square-shaped bag and another hobo that I did mess up slightly (though not too noticeably). Anyway, now I feel more confident about the bags and I think I might make a few as Christmas presents. After all, the fabric is super inexpensive. I want to figure out what to do with all the lovely silk my stepmom gave me last year - I'm thinking of making my square bags with zippers now... more to come on that.
