Wild Forest Beach Bag - In Progress

It's been a few weeks since I've had a chance to start a new bag design. Around here, it's all puppy right now. We've had our new Springer Spaniel puppy for a little over a week, and she has been keeping us busy! We're on constant puppy-watch around the house, which leaves less time to sew right now. Oh, and if you're wondering how that burlap dog bed is working out, I think this photo says it all. Someone has a hard life, right? You can see how I made this burlap dog bed by visiting our DIY post from January here.

In the last few days as things have settled in a bit more, I've had a chance to think through our spring/summer line up for the Grounds burlap bag collection. I've decided to design a new beach bag, the Wild Forest, using a beautiful new burlap coffee sack from Indonesia, purchased from a roaster in Plymouth, MI. With the previous beach bags having sold pretty quickly in our Etsy shop, I wanted to focus on a few new designs as we get into the core spring and summer vacation time. The Wild Forest bag has a beige exterior bottom, cream top-stitching throughout, and beige and pale yellow interior lining.

The Wild Forest beach bag is nearly complete. I plan to attach thick, twisted rope handles and large grommets to give it a nautical and beachy feel. The real focus of this bag is the burlap print, as it's incredibly vibrant and colorful on both sides. It will be a beautiful beach bag or everyday tote bag for the upcoming spring and summer months.

I'll be wrapping this up later this week and making it available for purchase in our Etsy shop over the weekend if all goes as planned. More photos will be on their way, stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping in and hope you're having a great week,
