Beach Bag

It happened again! Stitch started appearing in stores and mailboxes without warning.

I would like to present to you my most recent contribution (on pg. 72):

Stitch Summer 2012 pg. 72

It's a large beach bag that has zippers on both sides. It opens up completely to be a beach towel to lay out on. Details include braided trope handles and a large pocket. 

Here are a few more of my personal pictures:

I'm very familiar with this bag because the one in my magazine is my second version. While I thought my original was quite beach-y, they wanted something a bit more vibrant. Who am I to say no to Stitch?? So here's the original.
