Beach Bags

I bought this fabric months ago, I just had to have these cute little snorkeling turtles.  I figured I'd come up with something soon enough.  And I did!  When I saw this PATTERN at Jillilly Studio I knew exactly what I was going to do.  The turtles are Timeless Treasures Michael Searle Sea Turtles and Clothworks Waterlilies collection.  The pattern was very easy and fast.  I ended up not using different fabrics for the pockets, but I think they still turned out too stinkin' cute.  We're ready for the beach.

Those are the ginormous beach towels/bath sheets in there with room to spare.  The drawstring does come up over the top, I just scrunched it down so you could see it.  My mom wants me to make one for her with winery fabric for a silent auction for her high school reunion.  I see tons of uses for these bags, including a picnic bag!  I can see a blanket in there and plenty of room for goodies and utensils.  Seriously cute bag.  Thank you Jill Finley for this PDQ Pattern!
