How to Sew a Drawstring Mesh Beach or Pool Bag

A free sewing tutorial by Sylvain Bergeron for Bernina

Drawstring Mesh Beach Bag Sewing Tutorial

A simple mesh beach or pool bag (swimming lessons?) that is large enough for a beach towel, some sunscreen, a pair of sunglasses, maybe a phone, and a book. This drawstring mesh beach or pool bag is easy and quick to sew. This bag was constructed with a polyester mesh fabric AND rip stop nylon fabric. An alternative to rip-stop fabric would be canvas, sparkle vinyl, laminated fabric, oilcloth, or any sturdy, durable fabric.
