Pattern Details

Please note that this free download contains written instructions plus the pattern templates. Please visit my blog at for a complete step-by-step tutorial with photos. Sew up a beautiful hobo bag - it’s easier than you think! As I designed the pattern for this bag, I wanted to keep it simple enough that it wouldn’t take more than a day to sew, and yet still have all the features that I want in an every day purse. This bag is approximately 8’’ tall, 12’’ wide, and 4 1/2’’ deep (not including the strap).

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
