a late summer trip to Brittany with a new beach bag
Well, it was quite pleasant and being the equinox (fall season change),
we had a very low tide that afternoon,
perfect for walking along the sea.
I finished my beach bag just on time to try it that day.
It is ideal size for a small towel and a snack.
Fort National is on that beach, only accessible at low tide.
I previously mentioned this embroidery I was working on over the summer.
The pattern is from "Les Brodeuses Parisiennes",
a very sweet, vintage, and French embroidery company.
Isn't it so cute?
I paired it with some Tim Holtz fabric (elements, I think),
it reminded me of notebook paper.
The construction of the bag is inspired by this tutorial by s.o.t.a.k handmade .
I added the side tags so it can be a simple backpack.
It is lined with a flag fabric,
perfect with the theme and colors.
Now, if you know St Malo, you know it is known for its corsaires
(pirates working for the king of France),
its resistance to the English invasion,
and its emerald sea.
Cannon shot, just because it makes me smile!
really low tide, with easy walk to the Grand Be.
