We had a wonderful time during our beach vacation last December. Sitting on the deck, looking out to at the sea while waiting for the shuttle to bring us back to our in-water villa at the Maldives.
My daughter requested this set of Arctic Blue beach hat and tote for this beach vacation, she loves it so much! I am a happy mom with a happy daughter and a happy vacation. What else can I ask more? My life is completed with all the loves around, including those from you. Thank you!
As a beach bag, I purposely made this oversized tote without any lining; just in case if the sands get into the bag, we can easily shake them off. However, you may add fabric lining to this oversized tote and don’t have to worry that your items might fall out from the holes between the crochet stitches. Check out my popular crochet pattern of raffia tote that I shared on how to add a lining to the bag.
Happy crochet and enjoy the process with a smile 😊.
