Oilcloth Bag

No, I’m not giving up on the bags…!

Prior to a forthcoming holiday I decided I wanted to make a swimming bag big enough to hold everything we needed – 3 towels and swimming costumes, arm bands, swim nappies, etc…

I’d always fancied using oilcloth because the range of prints you can get is just lovely and it’s such a tactile material. This bag was an amalgamation of two bags in Debbie Shore’s Sew Beautiful Bags.

Some how yet again I overestimated how big the bag needed to be and I ended up cutting 4 inches off the length. I also cut the zip a bit too short so had to stitch it together by hand. 

I wish I’d put more pockets inside too. I have one for locker coins etc but more compartments are always handy.
