Are you heading to the beach this summer? Not, and wish you were?
Trade your normal commute to work for Rush Hour Traffic, Beach Style. Dig into your stash to make these fish that don’t seem to mind the crowd. All the gentle curves add wavy motion, and the button embellishments add dimension and whimsey.
Here’s another stash project. Over a dozen flip flops surround the beach blanket that holds everything a beachgoer might need. Linda Zokan of Thistledown used batiks in Beach Walk and they look great!
How about a giant Fancy Flip Flop Pillow? The kids will love these! Take it to the beach (the straps make it easy to throw it over your arm or shoulder leaving your hands free to carry all your other stuff) or use it inside on the rainy days. There are endless design possibilities!
If you are going to the beach, you’ll need a way to carry all your stuff. My Beach Bag is a simple drawstring bag that you can whip up in no time at all. The extra layers at the bottom add a little personality, and the rest of the pizzazz will come from the fabrics you choose. Go bold!
Want to try a different kind of piecing? The whole family can spend time piecing Seaside Summer Jigsaw Puzzle. Stay at home and still enjoy the beach.
Whether you are beach bound, wishing you were, or remembering past trips, I hope you are enjoying your summer.
