Charlie bag

I whipped this up on Tuesday night (actually it took me ages because I didn't read the instructions properly and stuffed it up a couple of times). You can see more details (and download the pattern) here at BurdaStyle.

There's a vertical pocket on the side that sits against my body so I can reach in and get my purse with my right hand without taking the bag off my left shoulder. So handy when shopping!

It's very roomy and the straps are quite wide so it's very comfortable to carry when it's full. I like it!

that is gorgeous! I love the style and the fabric. Have missed you at SnB, have you abandoned us?

Hi, your bag is awesome! I would like to give it a go but the pattern is no longer available on Burdastyle. Can I purchase it from you? that would be great!!!

Hi Marjorie, thanks for your comments on my bag. I've reported the missing pattern to BurdaStyle, hopefully they get it back there soon.

Meanwhile you can still get the pattern from their old site here, Happy sewing.
