Hobo Tote Blog Tour Day 5

I would like to give a big thank you to Nancy for inviting me to share my Hobo Bags on this tour.
I have made every single bag and style that Nancy has created….well it’s my job!
Each one has its own distinctive purpose and I have my favorites.


Hobo Bag with matching E-Tablet and Paper Keeper
The Hobo Bag is one of my favorites due to its volume.


Plenty of interior pockets hold all of my essentials while the “floor” capacity holds all my carry-on stuff…making this my go-to travel bag.


I had some Kaffe Fassett fat quarters just screaming to be used in this bag.
Love, love, love the colors…and this bag goes with so many outfits and coats.


Here I am at the Sewing Dealers Show in Las Vegas…bag stuffed to the gills, looking at Nancy’s Pattern Display!
This Hobo Bag is fast to make and the instructions are easy to follow. The only change I made is to use the 1” wide Create- A- Strap for the bag handles.

  1. If only the HoBo Tote had a bias binding, it would have been a perfect tote. It works well on those curves and long lasting kind of binding.

  2. The use of color and pattern in the fabric is what made me want to dig into my stash and get started! I can see several of these bags in my future! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I am loving all of the different bags on this tour! I love the purple and the e -reader cover that matches. I am going to make a bag to carry my on the go knitting project and one for a work bag!

  4. Love the colors and that you made accessories to coordinate. Thanks for sharing. Now that I see the accessories in the pockets, I can really get an idea of just how roomy the tote is! Fantastic!

  5. I love these bags! I’ve never liked making totes or bags, but when I saw this one at the Shreveport, La seminar with Nancy, I knew it would be awesome! I was so happy to meet her and listen to her lectures. She is such a talented lady!

  6. I can visualize these in a number of fabric styles. The tote will be great for quilt show, travel, a diaper bag……oh my I have to go start picking out fabrics!
