PDF Sewing Pattern
Instant download after purchase!

This is a PDF tutorial for how to make the Charlie bag, containing 50+ color photos to guide you through the process of creating this wonderful purse. It's great for beginners and includes a photo for each step. The Charlie bag is simple to make and is a great way to dive into the world of sewing! Learn how to set pleats, install a magnetic snap, and much more.

The bag measures approximately 16" at the bottom, 12" at the opening, 12" tall, and has a 24" strap. It's a great size for just about everything... Not too big, not too small.

It closes with a magnetic snap, and has two interior pockets that are sized for a cell phone or keys (5"x6").

Supplies list
*1/2 yard fabric for exterior (home decor fabric works best, but quilting weight will do... just be sure to interface!)
*1/2 yard lining fabric
*matching thread for the interior and exterior colors
*a magnetic snap closure
*1 yard light weight interfacing for lining
*rotary cutter and mat, or scissors and a ruler
*fabric marking pen
*an iron
*and of course... a sewing machine!
