Lined Charlie with no top-stitching

Added Mar 5, 2009

Queens, New York...






I made the lined Charlie bag, but did it differently than the how-to, resulting in a bag with (virtually) no top-stitching. I did it this way because I wanted it to have more of a “bohemian” look. I also added a flap with a snap closure, hidden by a huge button.

    Thank you all :) The photo really doesn’t even do the fabric justice… it came out kind of strange looking due to the poor quality of the photo (still can’t figure out how to not make the photos look stretched out and pixelated) but it’s really great fabric. I love it!

    It’s a wonderful pattern, and you’ve really got something special having used the vintage curtain fabric.

    The Charlie Bag is my all time favourite bag design. Combined with the wonderful fabric you have used, it’s beautiful.
