My friend gave me the pattern for a beach bag -- & also gave me the black, plastic mesh material. I made this for someone who wanted a black & white beach bag. It was fun to make -- goes together easily. The plastic mesh material is easy to sew. Some of the seams are quite thick -- next time I make one, I will use a "denim" needle & also a "jean-a-ma-jig."
I used "eyeglasses" fabric for the inside. The bag boasts 12 pockets -- 6 inside & 6 outside -- very handy!
My friend made me a beach bag so I used that as a reference to help with putting the bag together.
I use my bag not for the beach but rather to hold some of my craft items -- books, crochet hooks, yarn, etc.
