Are you planning a stay-cation this summer? We’ve got you covered with projects, promotions, and fun for the whole summer — starting with this Summertime Sidewalk Fun Bag. This beginner sewing project can be created in just a day and you’ll be able to put it to use all summer long!
Why this is perfect for you stay-cation?
I love this project because the end result has so many summer uses. What makes this project unique is the screen type fabric that is used for the bottom part of the bag. As a mother of two kids, we will use this bag all summer:
- Going to the pool — the wet stuff will get air and not make my whole bag a mess
- Collecting rocks and shells — with the mesh bottom, the dirt and sand won’t get trapped inside
- Storing sidewalk chalk and bean bags — for a quick game of hop-scotch at the park
- At the lake — for holding our boat stuff or even trash on the boat
What could you use this Summertime Sidewalk Fun bag for?
Day trip with the Summertime Sidewalk Fun bag
Looking for a day-trip to take with the family and show-off your finished Summertime Sidewalk Fun bag? Visit the Great Salt Plains State Park in Jet, Oklahoma.
Great Salt Plains State Park is one of Oklahoma’s most unique state parks. The barren landscape of the Great Salt Plains is comprised of salt left over from an ocean that covered Oklahoma in prehistoric times, and the saltwater lake in the park, Great Salt Plains Lake, is about half as salty as the ocean.
