    This thing can carry the kitchen sink! It has four huge beach towels in and still has room for flip flops, cell phones, sunscreen, etc.

    I didn't really follow a pattern, I just kind of got started and this is what turned out. If I call it making my own pattern, it makes me sound so much more talented than I really am. Maybe I'll draw up a pattern or at least outline my process later. (if anyone is interested)

    Anyway, what do you think?

    These fabrics jumped off the shelf and into my cart...and I have no idea how they got home! They must have known they were destined for something wonderful! I know the colors aren't your typical summer beach bag colors, but purple and I get along! LOL

    I wouldn't know where to begin in making a pattern, but if enough people are interested maybe I'll give it a whirl

    Love it! I always carry a huge bag when we are traveling and that would be a nice addition to my collection.
