Thanks, BurdaStyle!

    It’s so sleek and perfect! And I love how it doesn’t look like a computer bag.

    I love the way you’ve overlocked the edges with gold thread – very smart.

    wonderful bag; i was hesitant to make the charlie as it is ginormous, now i’m printing mine out at 70%, great idea!
