Rounding out the line of Echino fabrics is this series of sewing patterns by designer Etsuko Furuya. This pattern is for a cute hobo bag measuring 42cm wide (approximately 16Â½" wide).
Pattern requires the following:
outer fabric: Â½ yard of 42" wide fabric
contrasting fabric for strap: 17Â¾" by 6" piece
lining fabric: Â½ yard of 42" wide fabric
90cm x 50cm piece of iron-on interfacing (approximately 35Â½" x 19Â¾")
4" x 6" piece of felt (to reinforce strap)
Note that the pattern is written in Japanese, but detailed schematics are included. Crafters who cannot read Japanese but who have sewing experience are usually able to interpret the instructions without any trouble.
