Summer Beach Bag



It's a Beach Bag that is full of Yarns! haha. Why not? There is nothing I can think of when I am at the beach, I'd probably just crochet. Watching the kids swim and me just relaxing and crocheting by the shore. Ah! Perfect life! And this is the perfect bag for that moment.

This bag is perfect for anything, this can be a Market Bag also. And the slings are adjustable to your size and liking. The Philippines has been on a scorching heat since March already. Summer here is almost all year round. This week we are experiencing 30-35 degrees Celsius heat but it feels like 50 degrees! It's way too hot to stay under the sun. So I just stay inside and crochet! ;)
So instead of going to the beach, I went into the woods for this one. hahaha.
