something I want to make, eventually: A bag rather like the banana republic (apologies for being so gap-centric lately) canvas hobo, basically 12x12x6. I’ve been seeing a lot of tall bags with shorter handles lately and it makes sense to me, who walks a lot and carries too much and doesn’t like backpacks, or bags with too-long handles. There was a corduroy bag at Gap which had shorter handles a while back, now gone, which I admired too. But I need outside pockets as I spend larger and larger chunks of my day digging for my keys. Now I just need to pep talk myself into a visit to the fabric store for zippers and thread.
