I'm so excited to have just launched my store on Etsy.com - etsy.com/LoveInEveryThread. I have designed and made two sizes of waterproof bags. My new venture started when Aimee purchased a wetbag from a chain baby store. She told me that if she leaves her wet bathing suits in it for more than a little while, they leak! What kind of waterproof bag is that? Also, Aiden has swimming lessons every week and the little bag only held his swim trunks and nothing more. Nana went to the drawing board.
I designed a small bag (10 x 14) with a 14" zipper along the top. I used terry cloth for the inside layer for extra absorbency and PUL (polyurethane laminate) for the outside layer to make it waterproof. The bag is machine washable and dry-able. These bags are awesome to put inside your diaper bag for those unfortunate messy diaper accidents. They are perfect if you use cloth diapers. They will hold 2-3 diapers. They are also large enough to hold both swimsuits needed for mommy & me classes!
Then I got a request for a larger bag that would hold the beach towels as well. I designed an extra large bag made out of the same terry cloth and PUL. This bag is 20 x 16 and closes with a drawstring. It has a 27" handle, eyelets so the drawstring will pull smoothly, and a cord stopper so the drawstring will not pull through into the casing. The bag is also machine washable and dry-able so it won't get a musty smell like the tradition canvas beach bags do. This bag is large enough to hold 2 beach towels, swimsuits, and any needed accessories. Both bags come in various patterns, so please feel free to take a look!
I'm very excited about my new venture. I have also made a custom diaper bag that will soon be in my store. (For those of you who came to Joleen's baby shower, you saw my first bag.) I am busy sewing and hope to have those in my store very soon.
Some more exciting news! Keep an eye out on Joleen's blog (www.lovejoleenphotography.com) for my upcoming giveaway! I'll be giving away one of the large bags - the Owl bag.
I invite you to keep the link to my store and check back often. I will be adding new items soon! I appreciate your business! Thanks for looking!
