First project is going to be my take on a drawstring bag.
Really, there aren't any decent minimal hobo bags out there either?
It's a bag patterning/cutting class that gives an overview of a myriad of styles and techniques. You get to work with a few people with around a decade of experience in the industry. I'll probably take a leather working class at some point too. Learning from experts saves tons of time.
The closest I've seen in terms of a small minimalist hobo bag (for guys, anyway) is this Guidi bag, but even it has its downsides. I think it's unlined, and the dye leaches out onto whatever you're carrying in it. Also, there's nothing securing the end of the strap, so it's just dangling there if you want to have the strap tighter. It's a decent-looking bag, but not that practical for those reasons. Haven't seen a canvas equivalent anywhere, either.
The Noctex lung bag doesn't have the same issues as the Guidi bag, but it's a bit larger than I'd ideally like.
