I did it! I ended my sewing hiatus and whipped up an adorable hobo sack for my friend Cary’s kiddo just in time for our last playdate before they move up to Seattle. Though I was dreading the process of figuring out my new sewing machine and all of those fancy new bells and whistles, it really wasn’t so bad. It was especially not so bad while armed with a Fresh Fruit Margarita (I can’t wait to share this recipe with you guys! Its coming tomorrow!).
I followed MadeByDana’s tutorial and didn’t make a single goof (believe it friends!). This was an inexpensive, quick sewing project, that makes for a wonderful gift, especially when stuffed with a special surprise for the recipient. I stuffed this one with “Good Luck” cookies. Here’s a quick rundown of the project budget and supplies:
$3.00 1/2 Yard of Fabric (most any kind will work)
$1.50 Thread (contrasting thread is a cute option)
Free! Knit Fabric for Straps (I used an old t-shirt)
$4.50 Total Cost for a Rad Kid’s Hobo Sack
Dana’s tutorial is great, so I won’t show you how to make this magic happen. Just visit her site and be amazed by how wonderful and supportive a virtual teacher she is. I will, however, show you two more photos of my sweet Quinn modeling her friend’s hobo sack.
