Charlie Holster Bag is the hands-free option you have been waiting for! Replacing the fanny pack, this is a holster bag that can be used as a cross-body bag or holster style with an optional thigh strap to keep it snug against you. Use your favorite materials to design your own – the pattern is designed for quilting cotton, so no fancy machines are required! Dress it up with some embroidery on the pocket flap, or piece it together with some cork and a focus print. Once done, you’ll wear this bag everywhere! Shopping, the park with the kids, concerts, craft fairs… Small enough to be unobtrusive, but large enough to fit small items in the cargo pocket (like moisturizer and lipgloss), your credit cards and a snack in the zipper pocket, and your cell phone in the back slip pocket (pressed against your leg so you know when someone calls while it’s on vibrate). Leave your wallet behind and take only the necessary items with you.

    As soon as I saw this pattern I knew it was the ideal bag for my daughter who is volunteering at Caloundra Music Festival. The Charlie holster bag from UhOh Creations and SerialBagmakers. The video by Anne Verberckmoes made it so easy to sew.
