Sewing the Perfect Swim Beach Bag - Easy Beginner Sewing Project

Look what we're sewing for the little kids and big kids (teens) for Easter!!!  The flat bottom drawstring bags will be gifted at Easter so the kids can use them to hunt eggs and then they get to use fabric paints/pens to personalize their bags with works of their own creations!
This makes for one easy sewing project! Even if you are a beginner learning how to sew - this is one easy project that will make you look like a pro!

We can't wait to see their works of art on the white canvas part of the flat bottom drawstring bag!  
We designed the flat bottom drawstring bag pattern with the beginner sewer in mind.  The flat bottom drawstring bag includes 2 options.  The 1st flat bottom drawstring bag option includes an open pocket and the 2nd flat bottom drawstring bag option includes a zipped pocket.  Both flat bottom drawstring bag options are for the beginner to intermediate sewer and include detailed instructions with step-by-step pictures. 
The fabric we used is sports nylon because it dries fast and pet screen mesh on the bottom to make this bag excellent for the beach or pool but you could use whatever fabric you like.   If you are afraid of these fabrics - don't be!  Nylon and mesh are easy to use with your regular sewing machine!

Between the quick drying fabric and grab and go pocket this bag has me ready for summer! I don't know about you but sewing in winter can be isolating even sewing in/for summer seems more exciting.  Maybe it's just the Midwest talking. 
The boys love having a special drawstring bag but most of all a SWIM bag! I don't know if those are magic words like they are for my children but knowing and packing these bags ahead of time will be a game changer because you always have to bring ALL THE TOYS, sunscreen, extra clothes, and more when heading to the water! 

We also sewed this drawstring backpack bag that doesn't have a flat bottom and is even easier than the above backpack/bag pattern.

This backpack/bag pattern also includes 2 options for a small or a large backpack/bag pattern.

We also sewed this backpack/bag which I'd consider to be for intermediate sewers.  This pattern is FREE!
