Hi lovelies,

If you've been following me on Facebook you might have seen that I was over on The Sewing Loft last week sharing a tutorial on how to use your scraps in bag making for National Sewing Month.

The post featured a Reversible Hobo bag with crazy patchwork. Some of my testers tested this pattern with crazy patchwork, so I thought I'd share those with you for extra inspiration!
Here's mine that's featured over on The Sewing Loft. 
First up is Annette, I love that she's stuck to one neutral colour for all of her scraps. Great work!

Next is Margareth from Maggie Made Bags, I love that cheeky little raccoon peeping out from the flap!

Susie from Susie's Sunroom went all rock and roll on us using Hot pink with black faux leather for the outer!

 Emma from For my Little Monster used this light denim on her outer, it makes the pretty patchwork really shine through.
 I love Anna from Messy Rooms' bag, those large polka dots really make an impact!
 The Deelightful Dee upcycled a pair of jeans for her Hobo bag, I love that she's kept the original pockets!
 Jessica from XO Jessica made hers in this beautiful soft chestnut brown with teal accents, the colours fit perfectly together and I'd be proud to tote this bag any day!
 Katie's fun bag uses bright accents with this buttery caramel faux leather. What an excellent way to use highlight the patchwork!
 Maria made the most of her bag popping a little logo in the corner. I bet a nice 'Handmade' label from Emmaline bags would look excellent too!
Maria from Mia Creates used a solid fabric for her side accents and just did patchwork on the flap and handle, I love the fabrics she's chosen, it's interesting without being fussy!

 Simone used a Handmade script label from Emmaline bags on her Hobo bag. She took it to a bag making retreat and it fitted perfectly on top of her suitcase!
 And finally, Terri from A Creative Princess used bright, bright, bright colours for her Hobo bag, they're so fun and really on trend! Gorgeous work as usual!
Don't forget, if you'd like to make your own Reversible Hobo bag, you can still get the pattern on Craftsy.

I can't wait to see yours!
