Maggie Bags, now a product line under the trademark H.M. Maggie Bags, are the creation of a dear friend and faithful volunteer, Susan Hobson (left in picture). She has designed this "hobo" bag to be made by teams of volunteers and residents of a women's shelter, Magdalene House, in Martinsville, Indiana. The sales proceeds support the shelter and other ministries of Stability First, Inc. For more information about Stability First, visit our website at

Each bag is reversible, each with a pocket measuring about 7" X 9", giving you 2 bags for 1!  Bags may be made of home decor, indoor-outdoor, and/or lightweight canvas.  As other textiles become available to us, we may make bags of heavier upholstery fabrics or quilted lighter weight fabrics. Watch our descriptions of specific bags for details about the bags you want to purchase.

Each bag also includes a card with some information about Stability First and a testimony prepared by a Magdalene House resident or graduate.  Their stories are moving and a reminder of the struggles of life that are past, but not forgotten as residents gain stability and purpose. 

Straps come in three lengths.  The measurements are close estimates, as each bag is made individually and the length of strap placed between side panels may vary slightly. The short strap will be between 35-1/2” and 36-1/2”.  The medium ranges from 44-1/2” and 45-1/2”. The long version will be 50” – 51”.  Straps are 1-1/2” wide and of cotton.  This attractive and sporty bag comes in all three strap lengths.
