Mendocino Beach Bag

A new beach bag, big enough to take everything for the whole family in one bag rather than 100 little bags. This guy is HUGE 20" wide x 9.5" deep.

The exterior is two of Heather Ross' Mendocino fabrics. The straps are webbing on the inside from Nikki which I covered so are extra strong. Each side also has an exterior pocket between the straps.

The interior is a light brown canvas (which apparently I need to iron) and has a large 12" zippered pocket big enough for wallets, phones, keys, and plenty of other things. Both ends have a large pocket which fit 2 drink bottles/thermos at each end. (There is 4 big towels in there... and penty more room for buckets, spades, spare clothes, food etc)

Everything is double stitched and I double interfaced the exterior fabric with a medium weight interfacing to give it plenty of shape.
