Highbrow Hobo Bag - new

I have just completed a new bag - the Highbrow Hobo - not my design but made from a u-handbag site pattern (thank you Lisa Lam).  It is large and roomy with very sturdy straps with lovely o-ring details.  I have modified the pattern somewhat (can't help myself) as the pattern only had one pocket at the front.  I think you can't have too many pocketses, so I added another at the back, plus an interior pocket.  I think the fabric looks very French and the lining inside is a reproduction fabric from the American Civil war, no less, which I think teams perfectly with the outer fabric. 

See what you think....

and the inside...

The reason I can blog today and am not sewing - it's waaaaay too hot to sew this weekend.
