Backpack swimbag

This is a version of the ever-popular pocket backpack, but this time with a waterproof lining.  The lining is actually some plastic tablecloth - quite heavy to work with, but effective.
I was pleased to find this blue and white check, which I think works well with the denim.  It strikes me that a similar bag would be useful as a nappy bag - I will look at making a mat to go with it.

  1. It looks great, and such a nice change from ordinary, plain swimming bags.

  2. What a good idea to upcycle those Jeans that seem to have shrunk over the christmas period.... what is not just me it happens to is it :)

  3. Very cute! Love all the denim pockets.

  4. Looks really good and is sturdy, which it needs to be as wet swim kit can be very heavy! Happy new year, Jo x
