The Delphinium Hobo bag in 2 sizes - PDF sewing pattern
The Delphinium Hobo bag is a shoulder bag that comes in 2 sizes: large and small. The small size is more a medium-sized bag - perfect for someone who likes to carry essentials plus a bit more. The large size is a very roomy bag and would make a perfect beach bag.
There are tons of pockets in this bag! On the exterior, you have 2 zippered pockets on one side and 2 slip pockets on the other side. The interior has 2 additional slip pockets and 1 zippered pocket.
I kept the construction of this bag simple with a double magnetic snap closure.
The shoulder strap is attached to the bag by clipping onto a gate ring that is passed through 2 grommets at each end.
