T-Shirt Yarn Beach Bag

Spring is here and that can only mean that Summer is not far off and with the sun shining and no school, you’ll be off with family and friends to the beach, park, or amusement/water parks. And what you will need is a bag to tote your gear. Preferably, one that doesn’t have the name of your local supermarket’s logo emblazoned on the side. Rather, one that is cute and that you made yourself! Well, here is one for you.

Tshirt Bag 1

Isn’t it cute?  A few years ago I decided to crochet myself a beach bag to carry my yarn and stuff to and from the beach. One that was sturdy and roomy but not oversized and bland. This is what I came up with. Hope you like it.
