Red, White, & Beach Bag

Hey everyone!
So I know everyone is going to the beach or pool this summer so why not go in style? I was totally inspired by the upcoming holiday; Independence Day and thought red, white, and blue represent Summer for me.

Today I am teaching you how to make a very chic beach bag that is super easy to do.  The best part about making tote bags, is that you can customize them by choosing fabric that matches your personality.  And guess what, this bag will make a great gift!  To be honest, I would love a cute tote bag for a gift. They can be used for shopping, outings with the family, school, and etc. So yea, it has numerous uses.

  1. Hi,
    Your beach bug is awesome, I have a question though: the dimensions for the fabric are for each piece or in total (and we cut in half to do each side)?
    Thank you for help!
