What a Beach of a Week!

My week started out by finishing Noodlehead's Poolside Tote for my grandchildren. I found some really bright and cheery plaid for my granddaughter's tote. I had some whale fabric for my grandson's since he has a bathing suit and matching sun protection shirt with whales, what could be better?

Green lining and key fob
Whales, whales and more whales!

I love this lining!

Yesterday I found some cute beach cottage fabric that I forgot I even had so I decided to make s.o.t.a.k handmade's Two in One Clutch. I bought her pattern when she introduced it but I then took a hiatus from sewing and hadn't made it. What a mistake! It is a fun pattern  and picking out the fabric is a lot of the fun! I couldn't stop at, I made two large and two small clutches and could sit and make a lot more if I didn't have so many things to get done!

The two zips. I decided I liked using two colors to pull from the clutch

Black and red zips for this one!

Boys need somewhere to put their money also!

Two tone zips again!
