Hobo Handbag- Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?

Hello Handbag Junkies’ It’s Hit or Miss time!

Here’s a quick look at another Swiss Army blanket turned into a hobo handbag! Adding the leather straps, buckles, rivets and studs are still my favorite things to do that adds interest.  I think it’s the style that I love and this time I’ve dressed it up a bit. I may have one more custom order for a smaller handbag with the last bits of the blanket coming soon. So far this has been a very thoughtful and happy experience for me and a dad who wanted to give his daughters something special to forever connect them to a special experience and trip to Switzerland!


The adjustable strap allows this bag to fit nicely over your shoulder too! As you can see it’s pretty roomy even though, I forgot to take pictures of the inside tan lining and slip pocket!


What do you think? Is it a Hit or Miss? Fab or Drab?

Stay tuned there’s more to come from La Cartera!

      Thank you, Linda! This handbag is for his daughter. He has two daughters and I’ve made them each a handbag with his Swiss Army blanket. It was a cool project to take on. 🙂
