I like this Lily Sugarn Cream Stripes yarn. It reminds me of the ocean waves. This would be a nice tote to haul of your your beach gear when you head to the beach or to the pool. It is already summer time so you better get started if you still have a beach trip planned.

Did I miss something? This is a beach mat and tote. The directions are there for the bag but not the mat. I guess making up a mat to coordinate would not be all that difficult. I would just need to purchase additional material to make sure I have enough for both.

I confess I was very confused and am still somewhat. I remember a project that I saw that was called a quillow, which is blanket with a pillow attached and the light bulb at least got brighter. This is a tote with the mat attached. If you carefully at the picture you'll see that the mat is rolled up on the top but at the back of the tote with the handle draped forward over the top of the mat. I think the directions here may be the same, but this is a better picture by far http// == ach-bag-mat/SCC0103-003235M.html#q=beachmatandbagp == atternstart=2 I'm thinking about creating one, but I'm a rather large person and I'm not sure the mat will be anywhere large enough for me so I may give it to someone who's small. It is a very cute and practical idea!!!

I dont see a picture for the beach mat, but the tote bag is very cute. The instructions are very confusing though. I have crocheted for many years and the way these instructions start off are terrible. Before you even begin Row 1 there is a lot of stuff going on that I dont know how or where to start.

Thank you for this free pattern, so clever! I love that the bag is big enough to carry all the stuff I usually take to the beach with me plus it already incorporates a beach mat so that is one extra thing I do not have to think about taking. Will try to post a photo when I have finished it!

Would be good if I could get the pattern to download !
