I love the beach. The sand, the waves, the sun….and especially the shells. There is something so relaxing about going for beach walks and poking around at what the tide bought it. My kids and I could spend forever walking beaches, looking for driftwood, crab shells, seaweed and sea shells.
So, I have been working on the perfect sea shell collecting bag. I had a basic idea of where to start – a cross body bag with a mesh base so that I could wear it hands free and all the sand and salt water would drip or shake right out. Before our trip to South Carolina this summer, I sewed up three cross-body bags – one of canvas and fiberglass screening, one of cotton and polyester mesh (like for a laundry bag) and one of ripstop nylon and fiberglass screening. I gave one to each kid and made a large one of my favorite for myself….
