Beautiful day for the Beach

My sister makes a trip to the beach every year at least once.  I bought her a beach bag in Hawaii 8 years ago and it is finally wearing out.  So…I promised I would make her one just like it since she loved it so much.  It was daunting but it’s complete, finally.  It took me over a year to get up the nerve to figure it out and get it done but it turned out beautiful!  See for yourself!

There were a few upgrades from her Hawaiian model.  I used a vinyl covering on the base fabric and inside of the 2 zipper pockets on the front.  I also added a 3 partition pocket on the back of the bag giving the bag 8 pockets overall including the interior zip pocket.  It’s supposed to have a zipper at top closing the bag completely, but my sister said it wasn’t necessary and I didn’t argue! 🙂  I began writing the pattern down for this so if there’s any interest in making one of your own….let me know…otherwise it’s a one and only!! 🙂
