Hobo bags are always a very popular choice of bag for a casual everyday purse, and this one is delightful. It’s called the Ellie Hobo Bag and it is a perfect project for anyone looking for a large and unique bag that’s easy to sew, yet can showcase two of your favourite matching or contrasting fabrics. Due to its large size, this tote can be used for travel, trips to the market, books, laptops and the most important essentials – plus everything else!
If you use leftover fabrics, you can create a marvellous bag by patchworking them together, or keep it simple and use the same fabric throughout if you prefer both sides of the bag to be the same. A perfect companion for any season, for any reason, outfit yourself with this elegant, stylish and contemporary bag today.
When you purchase this pattern you will be able to download computer-drawn accurate actual size patterns and instructions describing every step detailed with pictures. Instructions are also provided for you to install a zipper pocket and a magnetic snap.
When finished the Ellie Hobo Bag will measure approximately 16” wide by 13” high without the handle and 3” deep.
