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”.
The funniest thing happened right after I completed this one: I received an email from a sweet Italian lady, telling me she saw the bag on my blog, she loved it, and would I – please – be willing to sell it to her?
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!
Making another one, a bit differently shaped, was high on my wish list, and the big shopper-sized kind of jeans bag I had in mind seemed the perfect summer project for CraftKitchen: hello “Beach Bag”!
I really hope I’ll be using my bag to go to the beach (or “Tuin11” for that matter) a lot!
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!
I might pop in here every once in a while to show and share my monthly CraftKitchen-projects, but normal services will be resumed again at the beginning of September ;)
Wishing you all a wonderful, relaxed, happy and sunny summer,
