Pattern Description:

Make this very stylish hobo-style shoulder bag in your favourite fabrics. The sewing pattern has full step-by-step instructions, colour pictures, diagrams and ready-to-print, actual size templates.

Any medium weight cottons will work well with this pattern. There is a snap closure, as well as two handy exterior pockets. The centre pleats add depth and I've used a complimentary button in same fabric to complete the look of this bag perfectly.
