Highbrow Hobo Pattern

Description This 'Boden-esque' looking bag is as practical as it is good looking, it's roomy, but not unwieldy. It will comfortably hold an unfolded mag/book, a bottle of water, an umbrella, cardigan, camera, snacks and the like, or it would make a fab nappy/diaper bag. There is a very useful and large front pocket, for tube maps, sunglasses, tissues, tickets and such.  See the smart looking piped top edge (or is it?) In the pattern, I've included a neat quick-trick for looky-likey top edge piping. The pattern includes full-sized pattern pieces and loads of helpful colour photos. This is a lovely and fun to make design which will result in you owning a gorgeous and very practical bag that you can proudly show-off!
