Just finished the eighth and final reusable shopping tote from the charlie bag pattern from burdastyle.  They're all lined, and I added a little keyring at the top with the original intention of including a little "bonus card" holder on each.  Given the time frame... this may or may not happen!  They're holiday gifts for the girls at work... I think I'll make some winter bark and cookies to give as well.  That should be alright, shouldn't it?

By the way this is my first "new topic" on craftster... so my apologies if I have trouble uploading the image.  We'll see how it goes.  This site has been such an inspiration for me since I became obsessed with it a year ago... I actually have several more projects to post if this one is a success!  I'm so grateful for this community... off topic, I know, but it is such a relief to see that other *sane* adults own rabbits as well!  Thanks craftster!!

see? I knew I would mess up that image upload business.  Oh well, looks like I'm too new to really post the pictures.. Here's the link to photobucket.

awesome job!
oh and what a coincidence, i also have that beige fabric with the flowers on it, and i'm also using pink lining for the bag i'm making with it Tongue

Great job! I saw that pattern a while ago - I might give it a try now. I'll also second you on the Craftster inspiration bug. I bought a new sewing machine because of it!

The world is a mess and I just need to rule it.

I love love love this pattern.  I also am making a TON of these for christmas presents.  I find that the pattern is really easy and quick to sew up, but makes a fantastic gift!  Nice job!

I heart craftster too! It is for sure inspiration for all my craft projects Smiley

I attempted to make charlie bags this Christmas too but unfortunately I couldn't get to my sewing machine Sad So instead I wrapped the presents I tended to wrap with the charlie bag in fabric I was going to use for the bags instead! I just I think its a really cool environmentally to wrap presents and very useful!

Great Job on your charlie bags I love the fabric you used!

And by the way you have to 10 posts to post pics so just keep posting and will be able to upload pics soon! Trust me, its easy to get 10 posts! lol
