Thanks to Julie's suggestion I am going to make the hipster bag. After a trip to Vogue i was successful at finding fabric. Its a tad cliche but when in Paris.... the fabric is Waverly and a little canvasy which i really like! I wanted to go way out in my fabric choice but the truth is Parisians are so stylish that i decided to stick with my usual neutral palette!
Initially i talked myself out of making this bag, looks so difficult but then I read a review on the pattern and decided to give it a whirl. Is it not totally cool to find a review about a pattern? For you iPad peeps there is now a pattern modification for your sewing pleasure!
