Hello everybody! This is the first time I write here. After weeks of lurking finally I’m doing my “outing”. Yes, I’m a crafts’ maniac, too! Wink I just can’t stop creating  and I like to do many different things. I will show you my creations, in the future.
I decided to write because this is the first time that I fell in love with a project and had absolutely to make it. Guess what? Yes, the jordy bag! I made some for me and my friends and they all like them. Thanks Jordy!!!
But, since I guess you have enough of seeing jordy bags, I show you my personal version of hobo-Jordy bag.

It only request a one-piece pattern.

CUTE cute! you did a good job on that, hobo bags are a little bit trickier (sp?) than others but your sewing looks ver nice and neat.  The bag looks really nice, i like the color combo and then the flap with the buttons.

I love this bag!  I also just love how you used thread that matches the lining to do the topstitching on the outside of the bag - nice touch!  It looks so professional!

You bag is wonderful but I'm having a hard time with the pattern.  Is the white part the fabric or the pink?  Your english was great it's just my brain that's a little off.

The white part is the pattern. It's just a drawing, so it's not 100% precise  Roll Eyes -I use squared paper, normally. Once you have the pattern done, you have to cut it two times on the fabric you use for the outside and two for the lining. Then... ok, if you want I can post a little tutorial. But I told you, it's very easy. Just like the jordy bag.
I will post a more precise pattern.

I *think* the square part is cut out because that's how you'll make the gusset/square corner, like you do in step 4 of the Jordy bag tutorial. I hope that's right!

I love your idea for this bag! Very cute.

 Undecided
Spent the entire morning searching for a pattern for a hobo bag! [/font] [/font] Guess where I finally ended up?? What a great site this is, and I get the definite drift that you are all mostly young'uns...that's great! I am an old'un but still learning.

I will make the hobo bag for my sister to take to Europe when she goes with my father to visit his WWII haunts. Will make the bag larger, use a natural-based type of felting for a lining, it's heavier and really helps things to hold their shape, and may find some way to change the closure...it will have a zippered pocket on one side and another without a zipper on the opposite side...inside, of course! It MAY have a cellphone pocket on the outside with a velcro closure? Ah...who knows! I enjoy playing with patterns and making it my own project...this is an outstanding bag, the Hobo-jordy bag...and a wonderful site to have 'happened upon...' MY good fortune.

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone happens to still have this tutorial and can post it here please?  I know what a Jordy is and how it's made, I'm just really interested in seeing how this one was constructed, and what it actually looks like!

Hugs and happy sewing

Tapeduper, your bag is flat out Pretty!  Did you alter the height measurements of the original pattern?  I have some gorgeous fabric and would like to do this.  Yours is lovely!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks so much Juaniece, and jl409!!!  I will try to put up pictures here since I think I have enough posts now to do that.  I will also try to put up my altered pattern if I can figure out how.

Ok, here you go Grin







Here is the pattern:




You could use this pattern here: http://www.zooomr.com/photos/zaty/3344711/  or try what I did (I altered the size and arch of the purse).  I took regular sheets of paper and pieced them together to make the pattern.  First piece together pieces of paper to make a (approximately) 13 3/4 (this is going to be the bottom) wide by 13 1/2 tall for the body.  Measure 10" up from the bottom and mark.  Next fold the paper in half across the bottom measurement. You should have a folded piece 7" by 13 1/2.  At the top, measure 1" from the fold toward sides and mark.  Now, at the 10"  mark draw a half circle, really more like an arch, from here to the 1" mark you just made by the fold.  I just free handed it but you could use a plate or if you have a nice tool that makes circles.  Open up and this is the body of the bag.  For the handle  I took another piece of paper and cut 2 1/2" wide by 11 1/2.  You can make it longer or shorter depending on how long you want the strap to be.  I like it long so I can throw it over my should.  Now fold this in half and draw an arch on the top.  This will make the top of the strap rounded.  You could leave it square if you prefer.  Next just tape to the other piece (body of purse).  Then you can put it together like the tutorial here: http://makestuf.blogspot.com/2007/09/hobo-jordy-bag-o.html.  For the bottom I don't cut out the corners first.  I just form a triangle, sew it the width I want the bottom to be, and then cut the corner then.  I also made some smaller and some deeper by changing the height or width of the bag.  This pattern is like the pictures I put up here.  It is really easy and takes no time to make.  If anyone needs more info or better instructions just send me a meassage and I will be happy to help if I can.  Hopefully my instructions make sense  Undecided I hope this helps you to make it:)  Have fun:)
