Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use your sewing machine
  • Iron
  • Basic Sewing Skills

Pattern Description:

You can make this bag as detailed or as simple as you like. I have made many variations to this bag over the years. The patchwork look can be more time consuming as there is more cutting, sewing and pressing required, however choosing a unique color palette will result in a one of a kind bag.

If you do not want to make the patchwork pattern, you could simply use a great statement fabric for a hobo style bag that is uniquely yours.

This pattern has very detailed and well illustrated step by step instructions to walk you through the construction of your own bag.
