The $200 Beach Bag

I know it's hard to believe, but this darned beach bag cost me $200 to make. Odd? Well, not really. I started sewing this out of a beach towel on my 30 year old Singer sewing machine when I broke the machine! After taking it in to see how much it would cost to repair, they said it would be over $200 and not worth it. I cried. Just ask Bill. So I had to go out and purchase a new machine for that same money. After weeks of just looking at the foreign machine in my home, I finally plugged it in and gave it a whirl this morning to finish this bag. It worked like a charm and has features the old one just didn't have. So here's celebrating the most expensive bag in my world. :)
