Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

Today I am here to show you how to assemble the exterior of our collaborative beach bag design. For this portion of the project you will need the following cuts of fabric:

Canvas or Twill:

Body Panels 15″ x 24″ (cut 2)

Side Panels 10″ x 24″ (cut 2)

Base Panel 24″ x 10″ (cut 1)

Pocket Trim 24″ x 3″ (cut 2)

Cotton:

Pocket Panels 12″ x 24″ (cut 2)

Side Pockets 10″ x 20″ (cut 2)

Key Fob Strap 3″ x 20″ (cut 1)

Plus one 1″ swivel key fob

PLEASE NOTE: These are the correct measurements listed here. In the video I said 25″ for some reason. Sorry!

The exterior pockets are designed to hold water, keys, sunglasses, sunscreen, a book and snacks.

Next week we will finish up with the top closure. Comment to let me know if you would like 1. no closure 2. a drawstring closure or 3. a zippered top closure.

Until we meet again, please know the creative genius in me celebrates the creative genius in you!

Blissfully yours,

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

Today we are beginning to sew our Collaborative Beach Bag. I tallied up the requests and it looks like we’ll be making a family sized cotton bag with webbed handles. Inside we’ll be incorporating a large zippered wet bag which we are crafting in this video and a mesh pocket which we’ll fashion in the next segment.
