I made this lined version of the Charlie bag (and really struggled with the instructions since I’m a novice to sewing). I think it turned out okay considering I messed up so many times.

I don’t have a pic, but instead of sewing the pouch into the side of the tote I attached it to a ribbon (like one I saw made by Kosmika). When I tuck the tote into the pouch the ribbon can actually serve as a handle to carry it by.

I love how much this bag holds!
