Black Vinyl Hobo Bag for AG Wardrobe Giveaway!

This is my second contribution to Diana Rambles "A Year of American Girl Wardrobe Giveaway". You can see the post on my first contribution HERE.   This bag is a a cute little black hobo bag with aqua damask print for the lining.  I've always wanted to make an adult size hobo bag, so this is a great place to start!

Yes, I'm on a vinyl kick lately.  It all started with my women's crossbody I made a few weeks ago, and now I have so much of it left!  I could probably make 20 of these little bags.  I even tried my hand at painting on vinyl, which was a LOT of fun.

Vinyl is not difficult to sew on at all.  I did purchase a leather needle, but I've read that some think that this is unnecessary for leather, so I'm assuming it might be unnecessary for vinyl??  Just give it a try!

The lining is a fabric that I really LOVE.  I just can't get enough of aqua this summer.

Isn't this little wallet so cute.  I found the chevron felt at Wal-Mart.

Do you want to make this bag and wallet set?  You can!  I found all of these patterns for free at Doll Clothes Patterns.  You just have to sign up for their newsletter to receive the hobo pattern.  Three days after signing up they will also send you free printables of the mini money you see in the picture.  To obtain the free wallet pattern, you have to like their facebook page.  I had to do some searching for the pattern link, but I finally found it while looking through conversations on their facebook page.  

My girl's are very jealous of the little girl who will win this bag and the other bag I made for the giveaway.... Couture Fold-Over Bag.   Poor things.  I should always make two of every thing I make for these giveaways and just put the extra away for Christmas presents!  

Be sure to hurry up and enter the giveaway before it is over!!  It ends tomorrow!!  Click HERE to enter and to see ALL the wonderful handcrafted items you could win (a $575.00 value!!).
