Follow-up Friday – “The Beach Bag”

maRRose - CCC --- recycled jeans bag-55My Fridays always have that little extra ‘pezaz’, when I have a finished project to share with you, and they’re even better when I can give you the pattern/diy of that project at the same time.

This Friday is all about the “Beach Bag”, my latest CraftKitchen-diy, simply made using an old pair of jeans, and some fun things to embellish it with.

You might remember the very first jeans bag I made last year – the “Flower Power Jeans Bag”.

I don’t think there’s a better way to feel appreciated in the things you create! I was absolutely thrilled she liked it this much, and so totally unplanned and rather soon the “Flower Power Jeans Bag” moved to Italy!

You can find the tutorial in Dutch on the CraftKitchen-site (link here, click on “werkbeschrijving”), and the English version is in the DIY/Tutorial-section of my blog (click here to get there).

All it needs to carry is my yarn&hook and the occasional book: perfect ingredients for the nice, long summer break that I plan to take!

Wishing you all a wonderful, relaxed, happy and sunny summer,
