The Hobo Bag is a beautiful light weight bag generally made from very colourful fabric of the batik style. It is lined/reversible with tie handles enabling you to wear it at whichever height you chose - as a shoulder/messenger bag or as a handheld bag if you prefer. It is specifically designed for use as a holiday/occasional bag with room for your purse, tablet, phone, towel and swimming costume.
As always there will be an extensive choice of batik fabric with a few other miscellaneous designs thrown in for good measure! There should be something for everyone!
This is an extremely easy bag to make. So a definite choice for any beginner wanting to try out their first project. Once you’ve made one of these you will want to make more! They are just sooo pretty! 😀
It would be helpful if you could bring with you a pair of sewing scissors, some pins and a quilting ruler or similar if you have one.
Unless you let us know to the contrary we will assume that you are bringing your own sewing machine. Please ensure that your machine is in good working order. If your machine is a bit grouchy or playing up, we now offer a sewing machine cleaning & maintenance service - ideally allow at least a week before the workshop for this.
If you don't have a machine or can't bring it with you, please let us know so we can allocate you one of our machines.
