Summer is coming! Canvas tote bag for the beach...

This bag is done in an authentic seafaring style with a fabric in white and blue stripes. In order to give a chunk of fancy, I have also added a little white anchor in felt! Hoping you enjoy it...

This shopping bag is made with a cotton fabric. Inside, there is also a fantasy fabric as casing and a little pocket with a covered button in the same fantasy. The anchor is handmade by me in white felt. The beach towel, the body cream, the fishes and the scuba glasses are not on sale...
