A finished Poolside Tote

I'm back from an amazing beachy trip, and I have to say, my new Poolside Tote had quite the workout.

I used it as my carry-on bag for the trip, and everyday, I carried my towel, camera, sunscreen, and other essentials in it. I highly recommend this pattern, whether you are taking a trip of your own, or heading to the neighborhood pool. You might want to add an interior pocket, and I omitted the key loop.

It's a great pattern for showcasing your favorite large scale print, like maybe some Mustang horses or bees!
The bag is not difficult to sew, but I recommend cutting and prepping your pattern pieces and then breaking before sewing. I just feel that I do a better job with fresh eyes and mind.

To the beach!
