It’s not every day that a bag comes along that looks a little different to the rest, so this unusual double fold-over bag caught our eye. The Hippo Hobo pattern is a great, medium sized bag. It has a large opening that looks like a hippopotamus’ mouth, which is how it got its name. This hobo has plenty of room within; it also features a secret pocket, an internal zip pocket, and a rear external zip pocket.
The Hippo Hobo’s features: – 3 x large zip pockets (one is hidden) – large main space for all your essentials – a cute loop and swivel closure
The finished size of The Hippo Hobo measures approximately 13″ tall x 151/2″ wide x 3″ deep (33cm x 39.5cm x 7.5cm); this does not include the drop of the handle. This hobo has been designed to be made using leather accents, however, faux leather or fabric can be used instead – instructions have been included to make your hobo from these too.
