Drive By Blogging: Beach Bag
Some several months ago, back when it was summer, I realized I needed a bag. Not just any bag, but a bag to carry sand toys. I have a toddler who likes playing in the sand and needed a way to schlep her buckets and shovels from point A to point B. While at a charming LYS near my parents, I spotted some fantastic cotton.
I snatched up three skeins of it and one of a solid blue that coordinated with it. Then I wandered through the pattern database on Ravelry until I found a market bag pattern I liked.
The resulting bag is big enough for a couple buckets, shovels, and a beach towel, as well as the occasional bottle of bubbles. Plus I love the detail of the knotted strap - one of the other Ravellers who made the bag added that and I thought it was darling. The pattern is the Grrlfriend Market Bag by Laura Spradlin.
