Hobo Bag/Diaper Bag Transition PDF TUTORIAL (Instant Download):

My daughter no longer needs a huge diaper bag packed with a three day survival kit. I was needing a bag that was smaller than a diaper bag, but larger than a purse - we still need a change of clothes, wipes and snacks. I had a hard time finding what I wanted in the store, so I decided to make my own bag. It has two large outer pockets - for a quick grab and four interior pockets. There is enough room for all her stuff and all my necessities.

This bag features an adjustable strap that can be worn over the shoulder or as a cross body bag. The two side outer pockets are great for wipes, a cell phone, chapstick and anything you would need right away. The interior features a zipper pocket, two open pockets and a pen pocket - that's SIX pockets to keep you organized! A magnetic snap keeps all your belongings secure. Don't worry about digging for your keys, clip them onto the strap ring and they are very accessible and never lost!

This is a very detailed and thorough tutorial with step-by-step instructions and high quality photographs. It will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete the bag. A basic knowledge of sewing/bag making is most helpful.

Bag Dimensions: 13 1/2 inches (width) x 11 1/2 inches (height) x 4 inches (depth)
Exterior Side Pockets (2): 6 inches x 7 1/2 inches
Zipper Pocket: 5 1/2 inches x 7 inches
Open Pocket 1: 5 inches x 6 1/2 inches
Open Pocket 2: 4 1/2 inches x 6 1/2 inches
Pen Pocket: 2 inches x 6 1/2 inches
