Yep! You read that correctly!
It's going to be "Beach Tote" time, very soon!!!!
I've been crocheting these up like crazy for friends and for the Etsy store. The size in the pictures is sooooooooooo deceiving. I fit 2 beach towels, a HUGE beach blanket, 2 pairs of flip flops and 2 bathing suits into this bag. The woven squares allow it to stretch and they make a great space to hang your sun glasses! ;-)
Since the bags are made of 100% cotton, you can throw the bag into the laundry right along with your towels. It will wash up beautifully with like colors. It will also roll up nice and small in order to slide into your suitcase for a nice beach vacation.
Check out some of the ones I've made so far!
|This beach tote was made for a friend and was done with JoAnn's Boardwalk Cotton yarn. It's a more expensive yarn, but this is definitely my favorite beach tote, by far.|
|This one is available in the store and I made it so it would be done for the 4th of July holiday. Nothing screams summer more than the red, white and blue!|
|Another tote done in special colors for a friend. This aqua was just amazing to work with. So pretty!|
|This last one is also still available in the store and just look at how much it holds! It's almost as big as one of those laundry bags!|
|This is the start of the current Beach Tote (the bottom panel). A friend wanted one done in Hot Pink! She is getting her wish! ;-)|
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my crochet work! I'm loving doing these bags!
