Alison was telling me the other day about making an over-sized pool bag that you could load your towels, toys, and lotions in and I thought it was a great idea (just like most of her ideas) so I went online and found a great tutorial for one. http://maidenjane.blogspot.com/2010/04/oversized-beach-tote-in-urban-green-and.html
OK, beginner sewers, this is easy peasy! YOU CAN DO IT!!! We have taken it to the pool and it fits all our stuff. I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby in the home dec section.
