  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 2 PDF

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.

I waited to review this until I finished the purse. It's SO beautiful! I am not much of a sewer, but the pattern was so good even I was able to do it. I used the Easy Zippy Tote tutorial to add a zipper to this purse and I also made the handles like in the Easy Zippy tote pattern. I had a question for the seller and she emailed me back immediately. I have gotten so many compliments on this purse and people want me to make one for them! Thanks.

This pattern was extremely easy to follow! The pictures are great and the explanations are very helpful! Very impressed with this. I have almost finished my purse. The part that takes the longest is getting everything cut out and interfaced. The rest went very quickly!

I love this pattern. I had to repurchase it as I lost everything on my hard drive. I was glad to pay for it twice because I love it so much.
