I really wanted to practice working with mesh fabric since it can be a real pain but it's great for so many things. I like mesh for beach bags because the sand doesn't collect at the bottom, it just falls right through! I also added a pocket for a cell phone, keys, etc. because I wanted a way to keep them out of the sand. This instructable is more about how to successfully sew mesh than other aspects of this bag since it is very simple and there are other guides out there.
Step 1: Collect supplies
For this project, you will need:
-webbing for straps
-small scraps of fabric for pockets
-extra wide, double fold bias tape (or make your own)
Step 2: Cut out pieces
Decide how big you want your bag and pocket and cut it out. You can really make your bag any size. I wanted mine to be around 20 inches wide, 12 inches tall and 6 inches deep. To make the bag, you should cut out 3 rectangles, two small ones for the sides and one large one for the sides and the bottom. The pocket can be any size and you can make as many as you want. You need one piece of fabric to fold over and become the pocket and a smaller piece for the flap to close the pocket.
