Last Thursday I spotted a 'quick and easy' bag on Debbie Shore's sewing programme at Hochanda. It is called a Hippie Hobo Bag and is a soft slouchy style with ties for fastening and also for the handles which means of course that the length can be adjusted easily. The ties can be either fastened onto metal or plastic rings (as here) or could simply be knotted together. The fabric used is from a charity shop curtain and luckily I had some plain pink cotton for the lining to match the roses. The lining is longer than the actual bag so that it forms a border around the top edge and I also added a floral pocket on the inside.
