I'm leaving tomorrow night for my long-awaited South Carolina beach vacation and made this bag in preparation for it. It's the perfect size; big enough to fit all the typical beach-goer's necessities (sunglasses, sunscreen, and a rolled up towel) but small enough to be convenient and easy to carry. I designed the bag myself and used a simple drop stitch pattern to make it extra stretchy and meshy.
 



The drop stitch row made the perfect eyelets for stringing ribbon through...I think it gives the bag a lot more character.


This gives a better idea of the bag's size...sorry about the sort of butt shot, I took the pictures last night and I was in my jammies.


You guys have no idea how proud of this bag I am! Hope you like it! <3

wow, that looks great. I dont like most of the beach bags i see going around now (just my opinion), but yours is really cute. Something about it just makes it all come together for me.

I really love that bag.  It looks the perfect size and the ribbon is a nice touch.  Have a great time on your vacay, and if you were to put up the pattern I would definitely put it in my to-knit list.
