There is so much room in this tote! It fits a towel, sunglasses, flip flops, sunscreen… a couple drinks šŸ˜‰ All your summer essentials! For the strap I made a knot and braided some yarn. I love the look! It almost looks like rope. I especially like how sturdy the strap is and that there isn’t much stretch. Sometimes crochet bags stretch so much that I don’t feel like they’re very practical. This one held up really well being filled with summer stuff and carried around. I can’t wait to get some use out of it this summer!
