Description

I altered the Charlie pattern to turn it into a hobo style bag. My first attempt didn’t work out the way I wanted it to, and this is my second attempt which I’m very happy with. The next time I make it I think I will alter the pattern a little more to make the body of the bag a little narrower and maybe longer. I think I might also add some ties to help the bag stay closed.

It is fully lined and has a button detail on the top of the handle – with the coolest buttons ever!

Material Notes

Cotton ticking, muslin for lining
