I bought this fabric from Target for $2.99. It was an oilcloth tablecloth in the summer section in its former life. I love the bold print and colors. I’ve been wanting an oversized bag for the beach for a while, so I just made one. It’s very basic – no pockets or anything, just a lined, large bag.
While sitting on the couch watching late-night TV, I starting making a pattern in my head for a wallet, walked over to the sewing machine and whipped this baby out. I stitched clear vinyl on two squares of fabric, added the pocket and then sewed it in half. I might put a tutorial up when I make one for Ryan. My poor little sewing machine had a hard time with the vinyl. Ryan was sitting at the computer behind me making comments like, “I don’t know much about sewing, but that sound can’t be good.”
