The Hydrangea is a large size hobo bag with a large front exterior pocket that has an additional zippered pocket built into the flap closure, a large gusset to give it a lot of depth and two large slip pockets have been included on the inside.

[UPDATE – sadly it appears that this pattern has now been withdrawn. Its always disppointing when that happens but external websites are outside of our control. If you like this pattern, then perhaps you will like one of the other patterns from Blue Calla here.]

The Hydrangea from Blue Calla is a large size ‘hobo’ style bag with the following features:

  • a large front exterior pocket that has an additional zippered pocket built into the flap closure
  • a large gusset to give it a lot of depth
  • two large slip pockets have been included on the inside
  • the strap is adjustable and can be made in the length of your choice

While some hobo bags can look a bit ‘slouchy’, this one maintains a nice shape and looks smart but casual.

This project is best for intermediate/advanced sewers. It will take about 4 hours to complete the Hydrangea Hobo bag. Instructions have been provided on making an adjustable strap so the body can be worn cross-body or over one shoulder.

When finished the Hydrangea Hobo Bag will measure approximately 14″ wide at the widest point by 10″ high at the centre by 4″ deep.
