Lea’s modeling for us today, ready to enjoy the beach with her roomy new Beach Bag.  This sweet Beach Bag pattern is featured this week for Anna Allen’s sew-along.  Again, all patterns downloadable through her fabulous book, My Doll, My Style, available at most book sellers in store and online.

Using an old pair of jeans from my stash, I cut the front to take advantage of the side seam for accent, as Anna suggested in her book.  I then used matching jeans thread to sew my straps.  To tie all my pieces together, I added beaded trim to the bag, using Therm-o-Web‘s Fabric Fuse adhesive, as well as using a couple beaded pieces to make matching earrings.

Remember, you’re welcome to join in the sew-along at any time and to make as few or as many patterns as you wish.  Plus, Anna’s offering a monthly prize drawing for anyone who uploads their photo(s) to Instagram!  Hope to see some new faces in the sew-along soon, along with a follower of my blog who’s joining us. 🙂
