A Beach bag and another FQ Birthday club gift

Whilst in Victoria, I found some lovely, dark blue batik Bali Pops fabric. I decided that a beach bag would look really pretty with those fabrics.
So this is what I made up with it:

I decided that it needed a sea side themed embroidery on it . So I drew this up and embroidered it and appliqued it to the front of the bag.

This is a close up of the embroidery:

I was going to go for a walk to the beach with the bag and photograph it down by the water-- but the weather here is wet and miserable. I will have to do that on another day.



I belong to the FQ Birthday Club run by Cheryll, and  I have received the final parcel in the post. The fabric is bright and gorgeous.

Thank you to all the people who have sent me birthday wishes and fabrics for the birthday club. When I use these fabrics in a project, I will always remember the person who sent it and the birthday club. Thank you Cheryll for hosting it.

Cheers,
Yvonne

Hi Yvonne-what a gorgeous bag you have made! The batik fabrics are just perfect for a beach bag and the applique the ideal finishing touch. This would be a lovely bag for summer here in Cornwall too-at the moment we do have the weather for the beach, let's hope it lasts!
Best wishes
