shiny hobo

What are you most proud of? The outside and facing. I love how the texture just gives this bag life. You don't need anything else fancy, the fabric is already shiny, but with the texture of it, just by positioning the wrinkles perpendicular brings it too another level without over doing it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider all of your options. It was a pain to get the fabric to stick to interfacing, but texture gives it a lot of character. Don't shy away from fabrics just because they're not flat or smooth.
