Leona Knot Strap Hobo Bag Sling Tote by Delinda Boutique

Here is a new bag pattern from Maria of Delinda Boutique called the Leona Hobo Bag. This bag is perfect for a person that loves the slouchiness of a true hobo.

I tested this bag for Maria a while ago and used a faux leather that was very soft and thin so it would maintain that slouch and combined it with a cotton/polyester blend in a pink and brown plaid that I used for the flat piping, underside of the strap and the lining.

Leona is a large hobo.  It is 18" wide at the widest and 12" wide at the narrowest. It is 13" high and 6 1/2" deep so it will hold everything that you will need. The straps are tied onto the hardware for a unique look. You may want to adjust the length of the strap if you like a longer strap.

The inside of the bag has one large slip pocket that is pleated on one side.  I did mine differently from the pattern by using a double layer of fabric rather than single layer.  It would be easy to add additional pockets inside or a zipper pocket outside if that is what you desire.

The Leona Hobo is a quick sew.  You can buy the pattern on Craftsy here.

    1. Thanks, Liz. I have a soft spot for plaids but don't use them as often as I would like.

  2. Amazing as always! Love your fabrics and colors! Thank you!
