..okay, so maybe it is Wink
But my sister's friend wanted me to make her a beach bag using a fabric I had previously used for one of my sister's bags.

So I came up with this:

I reinforced the bottom, and wanted to break up the pattern so i used some of the interior fabric to do so

Inside, there are 3 pockets- one large one (pictured), with a Velcro closure, and two smaller ones that aren't pictured and there is a clasp for her to attach the zippered coin purse she requested or her keys (have to take keys into consideration at the beach!) to the bag.

I pretty much love this bag- took longer than I thought it would but I think that was because I figured things out as I went along Smiley

Comments appreciated!



The zippered pouch attached to the clasp and the larger pocket

Oooh... I think (I know!) I'm in love!  I have to rearrange the favorites on my profile, so I can squeeze this in.
