Sewing my own OOT beach bags

Recommended Posts

Well ladies, I had something specific in mind for beach bags and couldn't find what I wanted, so...my dear friend and I will be sewing them ourselves!  Pretty sure we are insane, but we made a mock one with cheap fabric over the weekend and it turned out just fine.  All the materials should arrive this week and I'll be sure to post pictures when we get one done!

 

I have this really old mesh beach bag, and it's so great for keeping sand out that I wanted those for guests.  Couldn't find anything similar.  I ordered a massive roll of navy blue pet screen (which we've already cut to size because it was the first thing to come in).  I bought grosgrain fabric trim for stripes, and will use cotton rope for handles.  Forunately, we have plenty of time, so if we get tired of them we can take a few weeks off.

 

Wish us luck!

Making your own bags sound wonderful! My mom makes her own bags and there is something said about the personalized and hand crafted bags vs. bought! 

 

While it will be a lot of work - I think if you can start early and get them done - you will be so glad you did.

 

Can't wait to see pictures! Good luck!
