Doctor Who & Wonder Woman Beach Bags

I have two teenage girls in my life who love the beach.

One also has a thing for Doctor Who.

The other has a love for all things Wonder Woman.

So when their birthdays rolled around, I decided to make them beach bags, featuring their favourite show/superhero.

Here is Wonder Woman, ready to rock the beach!

There are two big pockets on the front.

And lots of Wonder Woman on the back!

I found this great Wonder Woman fabric on my visit to Ontario.

Unfortunately, Doctor Who themed fabrics were nowhere to be found.

So I attempted the hardest paper-piecing project I have done to date.  This Tardis took me ALL DAY to sew together, but in the end, I think it was worth it.  If you’d like to make one, the pattern is free on Craftsy.

I added a little side pocket for sunscreen or sunglasses.

And I even added a little Doctor Who quote on the inside pocket.

I am happy to report that both girls seemed pleased with their new bags! 🙂
