The beach bag.
Not to long ago we were cleaning out the shed and came across some shade cloth, Stace was going to throw it out but I asked him to keep it as I would make something out of it...what? I wasnt sure..lol.
Anyhow after a day at the river one day Stace was whinging about all the sand we carried home with us, that was my lightbulb moment!
I have talked about making this Beach bag and have thought of different designs and ways, anyhow after weeks of thought I finally made it today.
I needed the bag to be big to fit in towells, drink bottles etc, so I made a large simple tote bag , I added a thick denim pocket to the front and some spare fabric in a funky summer print I had left over from a funky bag.
I love this bag! I have even been out to the kids sandpit and put a shovel full of sand into it and it just fell through the holes of the shade cloth so my plan worked..YAY!
