This 'Boden-esque' looking bag is as practical as it is good looking, it's a roomy, but not unwieldy.  It will comfortably hold an unfolded mag/book, a bottle of water, an umbrella, cardigan, camera, snacks and the like, or it would make a fab nappy/diaper bag.  There is a very useful and large front pocket, for tube maps, sunglasses, tissues, tickets and such like...  See the smart looking piped top edge (or is it?)  In the pattern, I've included a neat quick-trick for looky-likey top edge piping. The pattern includes full-sized pattern pieces and loads of helpful colour photos. This is a lovely and fun to make design which will result in you owning a gorgeous and very practical bag that you can proudly show-off!  Read more about the Highbrow Hobo here.
