unsuccessful Charlie bag

Added Oct 29, 2008

San Diego, Calif...






This was my first attempt at using a pattern and I did not cut on fold. It turned out to be a practice bag I guess. I did sew in pouch though… If one was so inclined, it’s the perfect shape for caring a bottle of wine. Mmm.

Material Notes

Canvas like bed spread thing I decided to cut up and some random thrift store fabric.





Charlie bag pattern and some guidance from ‘tiny happy shoulder bag tutorial’ that’s helped a lot in my early bag making

    I think it’s really cool! i have some old Ikea bedspread like yours to recycle and this is a good idea… the shape it’s also different and nice, congrats :)
