This is the bag that never got finished. I bought these place mats because I thought it would make such a cute beach bag. And now that summer is getting closer and we will be going to the beach, I wanted to get this bag finally finished.
I took my two place mats and pinned my ribbon on the inside, since I thought the outside was so cute I didn't want the fish covered with ribbon. Once the ribbon was sewed on, I put the two placemats together with right sides together and sewed around the sides and bottom of the bag. I then took the bottom of the bag and made a triangle and sewed across to give the bag a bottom.
