Sun and Surf Tote and Jewelry Roll and Hailey Cover up by ModKid Patterns:

We’re going on a cruise this fall!  I needed to replace my poolside bag and chose ModKid’s Sun & Surf Tote.  Its cute, roomy and, as always when you make your own, I give it my personal touch.  

I’m wearing a Hailey Misses made in a crochet lace.  I needed to make a new poolside cover up as well.  

I chose a laminated fabric for the pockets as this part of the tote will rest on the deck where the occasional puddle of water finds it way next to my chair when I return from a dip in the pool.  I found this fun flamingo duck cloth at Hobby Lobby, as well as the laminated stripes, black & white polka dot lining, large button for closure, and the grommets.

I also found this Jewelry Roll pattern by ModKid -- it will hold and organize things I have to have with me, as well as my room key and pens for crossword puzzles.  The lining fabric I chose for the lining is also great as apparel fabric -- see Kari’s use of the calico flamingos here.)

I think I’m all set to hit the pool on the cruise ship!
