What a colorful beach bag. The motifs are probably the easiest to make of this project. Without pictures you may get stumped on assembly. I like that the only picture provided showed a flower added to a pair of inexpensive flip flops. Great idea.

This shows in the title as a beach bag but do not feel like that is the only place that you can use this colorful bag. It looks roomy enough to also be a market or book bag. If you are really that fancy, it could just be a purse. I love the look of the flowers as they appear to be three dimensional.

This is a quick project to make up and could use less or more colours and still be lovely. I agree a lining would be helpful. To have less ends and use less wool, the side and bottom edging could be done with 2 rows of SC (DC UK) in each colour. I also went for 52 stitches in motif rather than 56. Worked for me

This project REALLY REALLY needs photos to go along with it. Since this pattern is from a commercial outlet, Im sure its been proofed and there are no glaring errors. However, in just reading through the first part of the pattern, it LOOKS like the petals are attached individually to the flower center. Its also confusing how the directions switch between rounds and rows without much warning. I love the flower, but the instructions need work.

This is so cute! The squares take very little time to make, so this project is a fairly quick one. It is a good idea to add a lining if you dont want it to stretch out of shape, or have small items fall out through spaces between the stitches.
