Halloween Tote

I made this small tote for my sister since her Birthday is the beginning of October. I thought a cute Halloween tote was kind of a different gift.

I used glow in the dark thread for the handles. I thought it might make it look funny walking around in the dark. Party on!
It is reversible so here is the other side. I liked the Spider webs.   

This is a pattern by Serendipity Studios. Serendipity bags It makes a cute tote and you don't have to spend a lot of time on it. 

Pinwheel Beach Bag

Finally finished this beach bag that seems like I've been working on all summer. 

This is a pattern by Clover and Violet called Sophie.   Clover and Violet - The Sophie Beach Bag If I had it to do over, I would have paper-pieced the pinwheels because some of my pinwheels' points are off. It looks ok from a distance, but of course, I notice my mistakes.

What I liked about the pattern was the little pouch that attaches by snaps to the inside. I can keep small items in the pouch and larger items in the beach bag.

I'm going on one last beach trip up to Lake Erie so I am going to use my new beach bag for that trip.  Linking up to Sew Mama Sew.Sew Mama Sew Community Match
