Christie, the blogger behind, Christie Chase, had an amazing vacation planned. She would be spending a week sailing in the British Virgin Islands aboard two Catamarans with family and friends. Before Christie left on her trip, she decided to make a denim beach tote from a few pairs of old jeans she was no longer wearing.
I absolutely love this bag! The stripe design has a great nautical feel. It reminds me of some of the really high-end bags I see when I’m out shopping. Christie’s tote looks better than many of the beach or summers ones you find available online. I really love how she incorporated so many different shades of denim.
But wait, it gets better!
Christie lined her tote with the prettiest toile fabric! How perfect is this?! She added a magnetic snap closure for easy access.
