I wanted to make Mum something for Mother's Day but I didn't know what to make. I was getting frustrated as time was ticking by. Then I saw this tutorial on Little Birdie Secrets and I cheered! A vinyl lined bag to carry your wet bathers. You see, my Mum isn't a fan of exercise but she has just started going to Aqua Aerobics several times a week... and I am very proud of her.
The bag is 35cm x 26cm with a heavy cotton outer and vinyl lining. I added a zipper pocket on the front for Mum to put her keys, phone, spare change, etc and a loop so it is easy to carry.
The liner is heavy duty vinyl so it is very waterproof (great for wet bathers), extra strong and gives the bag structure.
I cut the outer fabric too small (agggghhhhh!) so to fix it, so I made some binding (thanks to the fab Bias Tape Maker I bought from Nicole Mallalieu Design) and sewed it around the edge. I think it worked out OK.
I loved making this for my Mum because she is excellent!
