This is a nice way to finish a Charlie bag with home-made bias tape and a straight stitch machine. You can make bias tape to match your Charlie bag, you can use store-bought fold-over bias, and/or you can use contrasting bias. Your choice! These instructions also explain sewing the Charlie bag with French Seams: all the raw edges are put away, making for an extra strong and pretty bag.

Technique Materials

Charlie pattern, 1 yard fabric, store-bought or homemade bias, thread
