Charlie Bag Love !

This is a free downloadable pattern with instructions from which dates back to the year 2007. It’s a pattern for a reusable grocery bag that can be folded and placed into a pouch. I saw on pinterest where Ikea fabrics were used to make this bag. They were all eye candy so I was prompted to try.

The pattern I printed out came out smaller than the original. I also trimmed off the center armhole curve of the bag to make the handles a bit slimmer.

The bag came out really nice. Great carry-all type of bag. I used a Japanese fabric that is sold by the panel and  lined it with felt.

The reversed side is this eye-popping printed canvas.

Totally satisfied  and will try it with Ikea fabric soon.
