I don't know about you but I have a hard time finding a cute bag to carry all my things to the beach or the swimming pool in the summer. They are usually made of plastic and I don't like that. I want a cute bag, possibly with a nautical look, big enough to carry everything (a towel, a bikini, a book, sunscreen, a bottle of water...) but not bigger than me either. I thought I would make it! How did I not think about that before? NOTE: Instructions not included! You can find the tutorial either on my BLOG (http://www.paulinealice.com/2014/07/beach-bag-tutorial-with-free-template.html) or on CRAFTSY blog (http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2014/07/free-summer-bag-tutorial/) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 22" x 14 1/4" approx.
