We had a great start of the month April, we did a city trip (you will need some patience to read more details and see the pictures of our trip); followed by a visit of grandmother and grandfather, what a joy!
Oma, as usual impressed by the amount of colors in the workroom, commissioned me to make two beach bags. She listed that the bags have to be big enough to accommodate two towels, a magazine or a book, and some sweets or biscuits and if possible a compartment to stow away keys and glasses.
It took Oma 15 minutes decide on the fabric combinations; but according to me those 15 minutes were well spend as her choice is marvelous.
Lack of time made me decide to take the same pattern as we used here. The size of the bag was changed to make sure it was big enough according to Oma her wishes and we finished the corners differently to give the bags more volume.
Nevertheless we still followed the work description from this book.
And … we even made Oma a compartment for her keys and glasses. We can’t wait till we spend the summer holidays together at the Belgian coast.
