Bag Features

The Reversible Hobo bag features two zipped pockets, side accents, a front flap to keep everything cinched in, and a smattering of hardware to give your bag that professional look!

Use faux leather for one side, and a fun print cotton for the other to make an excellent reversible hobo bag!

Top tip: If you're using heavy fabric on one of your sides you can even leave off the fusible fleece. Probably best to pair it with a cotton for the other side though!
