My godmother hired me to make her a fantastic colorful bag for her swimming classes. She was jealous when she saw my grandmothers swim bag . She wanted hers bigger. So I did and I really would like it. I took some home decor fabric and matched the prints up and for the outside of the “wishing” pocket I machine embroidered her name on it. The inside is soo cute and perfect for her swim bag. I lined the fabric with clear vinyl and added a clear pocket. I have a teflon foot, but on the underside is where it stuck the most. I added 2 magnetic pink snaps for closure. My own pattern, but its just big rectangles. I did have a bit of trouble with lining it properly but I think it came out great.
For Christmas maybe I’ll make her a matching toiletry bag….who knows.
Home decor fabric, vinyl, magnetic snaps, tan soft webbing for the straps, thread, needle, teflon foot.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
