What materials did you use? Some cute cotton print that I got from the clearance bin at JoAnn Fabrics a while back. The rest of the supplies and fabrics were in my stash, as well.

What are you most proud of? I didn't have quite enough of the print so added some solid black to the bottom. It turned out very well. I am currently having a bit of a love affair with bias tape. I didn't have double fold so ironed over some single fold being sure to leave one side wider than the other. I had never sewn flat felled or French seams before. Love them! I'm sure I made this bag harder than it needed to be but I wanted it to be quality.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Google "Charlie Bag" and you will find all sorts of different options including facings or a full lining. This bag is very versatile. Now I need to make one for me!
