Easy instructions to DIY purse. PDF Purse Pattern lets you Sew It Tonight! Zipper Hobo Shoulderbag. Includes paper templates.

Make this roomy zippered shoulder bag! Pleats make a soft purse, with interfacing to make it stand in its own slouchy way. It has long straps that make it the perfect length for tossing on your shoulder or carry as a handbag. There are two outside and two inside hidden pockets.

This pattern uses rotary cutting and step-by-step assembly to make it EASY! It is in English with over 75 color photos and 14 pages of step-by-step instructions. Plus paper pattern pieces if you're rather pin and cut!

The finished size of this purse is 11” wide (28 cm) x 5” deep (12 cm) at the bottom, with a 13” zippered opening (33 cm). It’s 12” tall (31 cm).

Thank You.. I can't wait to try making this bag into my Camera/Netbook bag... I'm going on a trip next month and do not want to carry 2 bags so I'm hoping this will turn out how I have it pictured in my mind....
