I've been on a bag kick lately - made a few for Christmas gifts, and have been collecting interesting free patterns.

This purse on AllPeopleQuilt looks like the typical hobo bag pattern. I've seen several, but never constructed exactly like this one. (Usually the handles are fiddly.) I think it's ingenious.

You fold the fabric in quarters before cutting, sew the sides of the handles RST, turn, and then assemble a bit like a zipper pouch.

I'd want to add some kind of pocket (zip maybe? or patch?), but that should be easy enough.

That is so cute! I keep thinking I will take a break from garment sewing and try some bags, but I never get to it. This morning on "Sew It All" on PBS, they had a guest who showed how to make a similar bag from a pillowcase. Yours really is a great gift idea, so thank you for the inspiration!
