I'm from a beach town, so naturally, I had to come up with a beach bag pattern. It's absolutely huge! you could probably fit a small child in there. It would also be great for going to the market, or library, but this fabric just screams BEACH to me. Smiley



The front and back are identical, aside from the print.



Here, you can get an idea of how the handles work. It's basically the upholstery piping cord tightly wrapped with fabric threaded through a casing.



And the inside!

Love to hear what you think! Smiley

Love the handles & the pretty flower fabric. But I would love to have some pockets inside. Also how big is it there nothing to compare it to for size.  Shocked  Good design though! Love that it opens up wide so you can find things easier. Thanks for showing!  Cheesy

Unfortunately I don't have time to make a tutorial. :-/ School keeps me kind of busy.
It's really not hard though, it's basically a strip of fabric gathered to a circular bottom with a casing, and then the handles.
