moby 2.0 slouchy hobo bag

Introducing the Moby 2.0 Slouchy Hobo Bag! All the gorgeous features of the grommet version without the hassle of installing grommets! This generously sized hobo bag is perfect for the SPRING! It would make a fabulous bag to take to the beach or the farmers market! It can be made from various fabric mediums such as quilting cotton, leather, vinyl and cork fabric. The pattern features a split lining that has a compartment on both sides with a zippered pocket in the center and soft pretty pleats. Add the optional crossbody strap and it makes the perfect day bag out on the town!

I hope you enjoy my pattern!

This pattern is for the Advanced Beginner. You'll need to know how to install zippers and fold pleats. Don't let this discourage you ... I have a Facebook group (JOIN HERE) that I'm active in and have very helpful members.
