Make a hobo shoulder bag with these easy instructions. PDF purse pattern tutorial includes step by step color photos. Also includes paper templates for sewing..

You’ll love carrying this fun bag! Pleats add a feminine touch, but the bag is interfaced to softly support its own weight. There are two hidden pockets outside and two hidden pockets inside. The strap is long enough to carry over your shoulder or swing along as a handbag. The small flap closes with a magnetic snap.

You are purchasing a pdf sewing pattern for the purse, not the purse itself!

This pattern uses rotary cutting and step-by-step assembly to make it EASY! It also includes paper patterns.

The finished size of this purse is 12” wide, 10” high, and 5” deep.
