I bought this fabric months ago, I just had to have these cute little snorkeling turtles. I figured I'd come up with something soon enough. And I did! When I saw this PATTERN at Jillilly Studio I knew exactly what I was going to do. The turtles are Timeless Treasures Michael Searle Sea Turtles and Clothworks Waterlilies collection. The pattern was very easy and fast. I ended up not using different fabrics for the pockets, but I think they still turned out too stinkin' cute. We're ready for the beach.
Those are the ginormous beach towels/bath sheets in there with room to spare. The drawstring does come up over the top, I just scrunched it down so you could see it. My mom wants me to make one for her with winery fabric for a silent auction for her high school reunion. I see tons of uses for these bags, including a picnic bag! I can see a blanket in there and plenty of room for goodies and utensils. Seriously cute bag. Thank you Jill Finley for this PDQ Pattern!
