I have recently been in a creative slump and was praying for some new ideas. I decided one afternoon to hit the hardware store in hopes that something would pop out at me (listen when you are in a town with 2 stores-one of them being the hardware store you don't have many options for inspiration). However on this day Heavenly Father was smiling on me because I found inspiration for my beach week beginning with this mesh camping bag.
To turn this into a cute and usable beach bag you will need:
2 pieces of ribbon 26" each
1 piece of fabric (for the top edge) 2 1/2"x45"
1 piece of fabric 15 1/2"x 6 1/2" (for the pocket)
1 -7 " zipper.
10. Now pin each side (the ones you just pressed down) to the zipper. I pin so that the fabric just barely touches in the center of the zipper.
