Sew and decorate your own Beach Bag

Pattern: Craftsy Senna Tote Bag


I’ve created this beach bag a number of times but since having the NV180 Sewing and Embroidery machine I wanted to make one which included a beach theme embroider design. It’s amazing how easy it is to apply embroidery designs and how much extra value they add to your sewing projects.


Here are two previous examples I have created using this pattern.

Embroidered Beach Tote Bag

As you can see I’ve used a few different ways to construct this bag. There are so many different pieces to the pattern which allows you to mix and match different fabrics.



Adding to the fact that Queensland has now banned single use grocery bags these tote bags are ideal for the home, car or to take with you to the beach!

I loved this project because it fits quite a lot in and with numerous pockets you can store all of your items safely. Another great project we’ve made before which would fit perfectly inside this tote bag is the Craftsy Boxie Pouch.
