How fun is this?? I just found out yesterday that my Poolside Tote won second place in that grouping from the Bag of the Month Club. If you were not a part of the Bag of the Month Club, look for it again in January of 2015. For one low price, you recieve a new bag pattern in your email on the first of the month for six months. They come from six of the best independent bag designers. They then gathered prizes and awarded them to the top two bags of each design Here is my bag that won.
I followed the pattern by Anna of Noodlehead as it was written except I added a large flower on the outside for fun. You can buy this pattern here. This is a huge bag that can carry all your family needs to go to the beach or all of your purchases at a farmers' market.
Loved the key hook that she put in this bag. I may have to duplicate it on more bags.
So, what did I win? A $25 gift certificate to Pink Chalk Fabrics. I'll let you know later how I decided to spend it......
