It's no secret that I have a flip flop fetish.  My obsession with them definitely inspired my newest pattern:


Flip Flops & Wet Tops 





This adorable wet bag measures approximately 7" x 13" when closed.   


The pattern uses pre-quilted fabric (of course you could quilt your own) and Heat & Bond Vinyl to make the interior fabric waterproof.  Can't you see carrying this cute bag to the beach or pool this summer?  Everyone will want to know where you got it.  When you tell them you made it, of course they will want you to make them one!  Wouldn't this be a great end of the year gift for teachers?  

My testers had a fun time with this pattern.  Click Here to see their finished projects.  They are all so cute.  I wonder how many of them actually got to keep their finished project or had to give them to the first person that saw it?  :>)


Purchase your mesh here in 6 fabulous colors!  Click HERE to see the colors of the mesh and add them to your cart.  One 18" x 17" piece of the mesh will make one Flip Flops & Wet Tops Bag.


Never made continuous bias binding?  Not a problem.  I have included a tutorial with this pattern that will guide you step by step to make matching binding.  It will show you how to turn this square

Into this 


You will become a pro at making binding in no time.  Matching binding really spruces up a project don't you think?
