My word, one of my bags as a winner! yay! Thank you!

About the bag: I saw the idea in a bag making book a while back, can't remember which one though. As soon as I saw the contest theme for this round, I knew I had to make it in this great towel I found at dollarama. I have the clear vinyl on hand and picked up the grosgrain ribbon to match. This is the first time I've done a bag with the handles shaped like an oval and I really like the support and strength it lends.

I don't think I'll be selling this one since the edges of the vinyl don't line up right. Maybe it'll find a new home if I swap with someone that wants it. Smiley

Thanks for the comments guys! Smiley

Peppermom,
After fighting with the clear vinyl I promised myself to never sew with it again. But if you want to do a sewalong, please feel free. I could post a tutorial type thing for this if people want.

rockstr009,
I've been on etsy for months and sold one thing. People love my bags, wist them but don't buy them. C'est la vie. Wink Thank you for the compliment though!

livingwithLES,
I don't mind at all! It's a bit huge for a purse though. Definitely the size for a beach bag. There's a massive towel shoved inside the bag for the pictures with tons of room for more.

Thanks again for the comments!
