Bikini Island Bag

Well, today is 'Visit Your Local Quilt Shop' day and many of the roads are closed.  The high winds are blowing all the snow around.  It is not very safe to drive although there are a few cars passing by.  So I have time to sew and post about new store samples.  Hurray!!

Here is the first:

This is 'Bikini Island Bag' by Brenda of 'Among Brenda's Quilts & Bags'.  It is perfect for the beach, the ship or toting your bits and pieces.  Inside it has a zippered pocket for your valuables, a cell phone pocket and another pocket.  The pattern calls for a large button on each side.  I used some red circles to make yoyos and used a small turquoise shank button in the middle.  There is a magnetic snap closure to keep things in the bag.  I needed something bright to add colour to this monochromatic day and season so went with bright red and turquoise fabric.

Time to sew some more.... wonder what is next?
