Hobo Bag sewing epattern

Pam from “d i y Design Fanatic” wanted to make  a bag with longer straps so it can be worn across the body. She also decided to include pockets inside that would fit a cell phone, her sunglasses, and some room for pens.   I thought Pam did a very good job demonstrating and explaining how she made this bag and drafted the pattern.  Certainly easier than it appears!  Give it a try if you are looking for a nice basic hobo/sling bag.
