Summer is almost here!

In anticipation of summer, hot weather, picnics and the beach, I decided a couple of new bags were needed. I had some scrap fabrics from quilting jelly rolls in my scrap stash so I put them to good use in a clothesline bag. It was a bit tricky at first trying to get that bowl shape while at the same time wrapping the fabric around your clothesline. Once that was done, I lined it, added leather handles and its ready it go. For a first time project I think it looks pretty good.

The second bag was much easier. I already had the straw bag, all I had to do was add lining and some trim. I really like the drawstring top, keeps everything inside and out of sight. I’m hoping to make a few more to put up on my Esty shop.
