Over the last few years, I've made lots of bags - particularly for my kids.  But last week I realised that they were still using old shopping bags for their swimming gear.  Since swimming is their thing and they go 4 or 5 times a week, this was a serious oversight on my part - so I rushed to make up for it and came up with these:

I used nylon ripstop as the main fabric to keep it waterproofish, and netting at the bottow to allow drips from the wet gear out and stop smells.

The girls love them and their friends are already asking for ones too!

I posted a tutorial after requests too:

Use what you've got to create what you want!

Great idea! I love the netting to let the drips out.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
