I wanted to try out free hand sewing on my machine (turns out I'm really bad at it, haha) and I wanted to make a beach bag with a design I actually liked.
When I, a little over a year ago, was gifted a whole lot of fabric, I got some off-green/off-white stripy fabric and my first thought was "BEACH BAG!"
(I hate our yellowish bedroom walls, ugh...)
The pocket, lining and anchor was made out of denim, I used some sweeeet soft rope I found in an alley-store downtown and eyelets for the fastening, because... well, eyelets frikkin' rocks.
The handles was a simply attached my tying a knot on the inside.
(The bag became a gift for Mr. Kilt. We also found out if the Dog fits in the bag. He did, obviously.)
Now I swear I made this thing at least a day or so before they showed up in all the stores, honestly. Hopefully. Maybe....
Don't run with scissors.
