My First Two Charlie Bags

Added Dec 28, 2009

Gardner, Kansas,...






Two of my first Charlie Bags from Home Dec fabric. I did not include the build in pouch, I think its unnecessary. This was a gift to a very special eco-friendly person from me.

Material Notes

Home dec, unsure of the actual fabric.

    There is a really cool little fabric shop where I take my sewing classes; they have a new online site that sells cool fabric I’m sure they have light home dec fabric. I’m gonna slip by over the weekend and see if I can get some and take a shot at the charlie bag again. Sew L.A. is the name of the place. Thanks for the tips; I appreciate it.

    Very Pretty. I tried to make the Charlie Bag (ha ha ha!) Didn’t purchase enough fabric? So I moved on to the Diana Bag. I’m gonna try again at the Charlie Bag; good idea on the Home Dec fabric.

      Thank you.

      I think I bought a yd of each. Well the green, I bought more just cause it was the end of the bolt. But I didn’t use it. I’ll probably make something else out of it like a coupon holder or something.

      I chose light home dec fabric not only for the weight and the longetivity, but I couldn’t find any cute prints in any of my fabric shops! :]
