Elora Hobo Handbag sewing pattern (2 sizes)

This is the Elora Hobo Handbag pdf sewing pattern from the designer RLR Creations Sewing.

The Elora Handbag is described by the designer as a modern day take on the classic Hobo – a bit of slouch mixed with structure… but most of all, must-have style and function.

This handbag is definitely something a bit different and much more unique than a lot of handbags out there. Elora could be just the handbag that you are looking for!

To keep your contents secure there’s a hook and latch closure along with magnetic snap tabs that allows you the option to convert your handbag to a tote bag for those times you need more space. Elora has dual top handles and an adjustable/removable strap that gives you lots of carrying convenience.

And best of all the designer says that this pattern features two sizes!
