Excellent Love it!  June 22, 2013

This beach bag is huge, which is a good holds 4 beach towels, sunscreen, sun hats, beach toys...and with room to spare! The cotton yarn lets me throw it in the washing machine, without any worries. The open squares keeps air flowing around wet towels. So glad I made it!

Excellent Great project!  May 31, 2013

I have made MANY of these bags now. I give them as gifts, so I keep one or two made up in advance. My children wanted me to make each teacher a bag as an end-of-the-school-year gift, so I had to make some up. The teachers love them, and I like that we gave them something they'll never get from anyone else. Now, if only we can talk the designer into making a beach cover-up to match, I'll get started on one to match my bag...

Excellent Love this pattern!  April 18, 2013

I was so shocked at how large this back came out. In my example I fit a huge beach blanket, 2 beach towels, 2 bathing suits and 2 pairs of flip flops. It's an awesome size and fits so much stuff! Love it!

Good Very simple!  August 27, 2012

This pattern is very simple to follow and works up very quickly. It's quite rewarding to start seeing the mesh pattern emerge so quickly. Be aware that the bag ends up much larger than you might expect. It's pretty ridiculously large, actually!

Excellent Great pattern!  August 19, 2012

Loved every minute of making this bag! (: Great pattern, definitely recommend giving it a try. It is not too difficult and you will end up with a great item that will receive lots of compliments! :D
I love the clever way the mesh is done so it looks doubled. Very inventive pattern!
