Beach Charlie

I love the Charlie pattern. I needed a beach bag so I added pockets on the side for water bottle and soda. Charlie is huge. I fit two beach towels, clothes, sunscreen, drinks, snacks and I dont know what else. I will get a lot of use from it this summer.

    I’m a very beginner sewer, I love the adaptations you’ve made to this bag and I’m attempting it myself, how did you make that flower thats on the front?

    amazing transformation! the colors are very beach-like, and the pockets are really useful. And that Nokia phone looks just like mine

    I love the bag. The fabric is so pretty. The pockets are a great idea.

    I really like the pockets you added, especially the water bottle pocket with the ribbon to cinch it closed. Great idea!
