I am a sworn swimmer, I really love to swim, dive and everything where water is involved... So I swim at the pool every week for more than 10 years now and I've always had the same problem: I can not have a fabric bag because it gets wet while showering and than wets all my backpack and if I have a plastic/waterproof bag to hold my showering utensils (shampoo, shower gel, balsam for hair, glasses, cap, wet swimsuit,...) the water from the shower gathers at the bottom and I carry it home Sad. Not good either.

So I found the perfect solution:

It doesn't look like from the fashion show, I give you that Grin but it's very practical and very easy to do! It's made of sturdy meshing (from packaging of toys, beans, citrus...) and heavy duty tape and the handles are made of old plastic string that I twisted together to make it stronger. I can make a tute if anybody is interested, it's really easy, fun and practical. You can even make it with kids!

I like the look of it, actually. Perfect for a swimming shower bag!

Yay, duct tape! It should have its own board. Grin
