McCall's Hobo Bag
I've made this bag twice now. The first time was a few years ago. After I finished making this bag the second time, I remembered "Oh! Right! This bag is huge!" LOL!
I'd bought this crushed velvet-esque fabric some time ago. I vowed that I'd find the perfect pattern to make myself a Christmas/winter bag with it. After I moved around this fabric several times, I finally decided that THIS was going to be the year to use it. I debated between two patterns then decided on this Easy Stitch 'N Save (M5914) pattern that has been discontinued.
The instructions for this bag have you put a magnetic closure. I decided to make a zipper closure for mine. On the inside, there are instructions and a pattern for a cell phone/sunglasses slip pocket. I used this, and added a zippered pocket on the other side.
