Um, you might want to put on some sunglasses for this post. So Carolyn forced upon me sent me a cotton shower curtain dotted with palm trees. I asked if she wanted me to make her a bag or something with it, and she said, well, maybe a beach bag.

Yeah, it is kind of bright, isn’t it? Peter said it could be used as a Coast Guard beacon. I know you won’t believe me, but I chose the green to TONE DOWN the brightness. Yes, I was going to use the pink on the front as well as the sides! Well, at least Carolyn won’t be able to misplace this bag.

    I think it’s a great summer bag! (And I expect Carolyn will concur.)

    I think it’s a cute bag! I’m not so confident that Carolyn can’t misplace this bag, she’s had alot of odd things happen in her ‘hood. Pursesnatcher wouldn’t be too crazy.

    What a clever way to use a shower curtain! I’m imagining all sorts of fun and funky things that you could make…I’m sure you get a lot of fabric out of one.
    The pink is perfect…it’s summer and you’re wearing sunglasses anyway so you need to be able to see it.
