Very Retro Charlie Bag

Added Oct 8, 2009

Vienna, Austria






I bought this 70’s fabric a while ago and love it, but then couldn’t figure out what to make with it. This is a Charlie Bag with Bias and Lining. Any other ideas for this fabric? I have lots left!
Can’t find the pattern any more, but I think I downloaded it from burda…

Material Notes

Sturdy 70’s deco fabric, lining, bias tape

    That fabric is awesome! Is it vintage fabric or just fashioned after the 70s?

    Maybe you could use the remainder fabric it to make one of maria-gehrke’s sewing machine mats!

      Yeah, it’s real vintage fabric – at least I think so – I bought it through Ebay… I have LOTS left, I already made another bag, and the sewing machine mat is a GREAT idea, I’ve seen it already and you are right, it would be super with this! Thanks!

    Great fabric! I would make anything from it… pillow covers, skirt, curtains… I´d love to find a similar fabric too.

    I’m seeing this fabric as a hawaiian muu’muu or as a caftan.

    Love it! I`m wiht mo-mo, this fabric would work fine for home decoration. I don`t see it for clothing, I think this would be a little to much – unless you are a very brave person. ;)

    awesome bag!!! i see curtains made out of that fabric, but then again, you’d have to be rocking totally retro furniture to go with it, shag carpet and all….
