Now that spring has arrived in New England I'm dreaming of summer. I picked up this awesome home dec weight Dear Stella sailboat fabric at Quilter's Way and decided it would make the perfect summer beach bag. This bag is loosely based on Jane's Standard Tote tutorial. The lining peeking over the top adds the perfect little pop of color!
I bought these grommets when I was making roman shades years ago but never got around to putting them on. They're super easy to use, just a few taps with a hammer. I love the nautical touch they add with the rope handles!
I added an inside pocket for my cell phone and a key holder to the front. It's the perfect size for everything I need for a day by the pool:-) Can't wait!
