I thought I would start the year off by making something really quick and easy to compliment my Christmas presents. I have been learning to surf so I got a small pack of surf accessories to go with my brand new board. So I decided to make a summer themed pencil case to fit all of my accessories. These pencil cases are perfect for so many occasions, especially for kids going back to school.
I found the pattern from the Craftsy Boxie Pouch but instead of doing the boxed edges I just sewed it straight to make a standard pencil case.
After I made my first beach Senna Tote (Craftsy Pattern) I was thrilled and wanted to make it again in this awesome fabric I got from Spoonflower. I always wash my fabric first and noticed that it did fade a tiny bit but it still looks effective.
If you’re looking for a great bag to take to the beach with you this summer, I would highly recommend the Craftsy Senna Tote Bag! I made a test bag using some material I had in my stash but then ended up loving it. However, I still plan on making a new one so I have a a couple of bags to choose from.
My Beach Senna Tote Bag
This size of this bag is perfect to fit your towel, wallet, phone, sunscreen and even your spare clothes! I was also considering going to Cotton On and getting one of those cushion beach pillows.
