Charlie Eco Bag

Added Apr 2, 2008

by marijapo

Ljubljana, Slovenia






This is an eco bag, to reduce the use of plastic bags. It is super great, since I lined it, which adds extra “strongness” of the bag. I shop with this bag regularly and the bag has never been too small, which is great success. But, sewers, be aware! This bag is not a 2 hours project, specially if you line it, I was sewing it for a day or two, since I had to stitch every seam couple of times (I made it as the how to suggested – with French seams).

Material Notes

Cotton leftovers





BurdaStyle for producing free downloadable patterns.

Igor for constructing the flower – Igor, I know you are a better mathematician, although, you are a physicist and I am a mathematician.

    Rasita – I attached the flower by using a narrow zick-zack. Every machine can do it.

    When I made my first charlie bag, I lined it also. How I lined it was to make two bags, stick wrong sides together then fold over the raw edges (so they were hidden) as I sewed around the edges. How did you attach the flower to your bag? I have been thinking about jazzing up the next bag I make but I am not sure how to go about it.
