Description

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 it's 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 15½” 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.
