New Bag Making Pattern Sewing – September Blue Hobo Handbag

As promised, I have the first of some new bag-making sewing patterns ready! Introducing the September Blue Hobo Handbag sewing pattern:


I used a fat quarter bundle to make this modern hobo-style handbag. The use of pieced panels allows you to show off coordinating prints at their best. For a professional finish, I added a twist/turn lock for the closure. I used some gorgeous fabrics from Dashwood Studio, called September Blue by Susan Driscoll.


This sewing pattern is suitable for intermediate sewers but could be tackled by confident beginners who have made a bag or two already and feel ready to take on a more challenging make. It includes easy to follow step-by-step instructions, with plenty of colour images throughout, and full-size pattern pieces are provided for you to download and print at home. If you’d like to give this bag a go, you’ll find the sewing pattern in my Etsy shop here. Happy sewing!
