Since many people liked my “Very Retro Charlie Bag” so much I decided to share this one, too. Bags seem to be the best thing to make out of this material. I came up with the pattern myself, copying bags I own and like… I very much like the inside pocket as well as the two outside ones that I put an elastic through – it’s perfect for the mobile phone and some kleenex. However, the straps are a bit too wide, which makes them slide off the shoulder easily. They turned out this wide because I wanted to give the bag more depth. Bad idea I guess… The magnetic snap which is attached to that brown band is not strong enough, so I will add an actual, real button instead.
