I have just finished a birthday present for my sister - a beach bag.
This is my first go at the Nicole Mallalieu Beach Bag pattern (although it is one of the first of her patterns that I bought). I used my umbrella tree screen print in turquoise on pale blue (an interesting colour combination but it works really well). There are three external pockets in the front, a zipper close and a turquoise "yo-yo" to finish it off .
This is what the back of the beach bag looks like.
And it is fully lined in turquoise with a zippered pocket and three compartment pockets. Loads of room for all her stuff.
Hope she likes it. It's taken me long enough to get around to making it!
