Ever since Sharon Holland’s Coastline fabrics arrived on my doorstep, I knew that I wanted to make beach bags! I decided that I would do that this week and make them for my daughters’ teachers. For this bag, I used the Stash Happy Tote pattern found in my book, Intentional Piecing. I designed the bag to go along with 10 new paper pieced block patterns provided in the book but also, the majority of the patterns that I sell in my pattern shop! Any of my 10″ blocks will work for this exterior pocket. I used my Flip Flop here.
I made the second bag using the other colorway of Coastline. I designed a new block for this one, a scallop shell. I thought it would work well with that light, neutral print!
I hope that the teachers like them!
