Fun bag and will make more. I sewed two charms together 5 times and connected them . Easier to get the edges together nicely. I also will add a few buttons with a faric to close the bag, just my preference. I made my binding bit wider 3' just for ease of seeing on. Next time I would sew straps from attachment site at base all the way to 2 inch mark. Don't like the gapping.Realty like the charm pack and will do more as gifts as it is a great big bag! Not sure how to add picture.

I made one of these - my was more a library tote - 3 charms to a side - great fun, i quilted both sides - one with a horizonal quilt, one with a straight quilt - just for variety. I put four pockets in mine - 2 to a side - you know how you collect things that all fall to the bottom of the bag? these take care of that collection. Easy to do, I lined mine with a screaming orange so no one would want it, but me. Great project.
