Friends, I love the BurdaStyle Charlie Grocery Bag pattern. It's so easy to make and customize, and also relatively easy to make reversible (I just top stitch the pieces together). I decided to make one for my dear friend, Lizzie, who celebrated her birthday this past Sunday.
I used plaid remnants from a pair of shorts I made last year for one side. I thought there should be at least one tame side to the bag to counter the awesome colors on the other...
Because I didn't have enough of the bohemian print for the front and back pieces, I added some color block elements. It's kind of funky - I'm digging it.
The full spectrum of color. I love the design, and Lizzie loved it, too! (That's the important thing, right?)
My lovely Lizzie (center). Happy Birthday, Lizzie!!
