Le Hobo

Pattern: Hobo Bag by Jill Brown (June 29th in the Stitch n' Bitch Desktop Calendar)
Yarn: Lion Brand Landscapes in Country Summer (or something like that)
Size 11 needles

I have been plagued with indecision over this bag. To felt or not, how deep should I really make it, how long should the straps be, should I gift it, as originally intended (Melissa, would you like this?)

The only thing was able to be decisive about was the button. I love the button. It's the perfect maroon for the yarn. And, well, I love the yarn. I bought a skein or two on sale for a needle case, then a few more, thinking I could make a shrug (in variegated bulky yarn. Not beautiful). So I was really happy on June 29th when this patten showed up on my calendar.

I really like how this turned out, but really needs a lining to be functional...I've never lined a bag before and my sewing space is almost non-existent. Any suggestions?
