This is my easy version of the Charlie/Grocery Bag. I got the idea to recycle an old pillow case from a fellow member and it works awesome. Just cut and sew handles like the Charlie, close up the bottom, add some design, and your done! Plus since a pillow case is so deep, it’s absolutely great for grocery’s.
I think next time I might cut off the bottom trim, and definitely add a pocket.
