My daughters both swim after school. They have been swimming since they were born, and both love it.
Last weekend they both entered their first swimming carnival which although they did find a little daunting as two of the youngest swimmers there - they thoroughly enjoyed!
We came away with participation ribbons - and a medal! Much to the thrill of my daughter and pride of her parents and sister!!
This win has resulted in an increased desire to swim more and this week we've been every day after school!
I realised that of all the bags I've made for them for every possible occasion and use, I haven't made them swimming bags! How could I have missed that?
For the last few years they've been using pink shopping bags for their swimming gear!
So, I decided to rectify the situation and make them their own special swimming bags!
Big enough to fit in their flippers, swimmers, goggles and towels.
Net along the bottom so the water can drain away when they get stuffed full of their wet gear!
And their names on the front so they don't lose them or get them mixed up!
I'm pleased with the bags - and will be posting a tutorial on how I made them next week!
What bags have you made for your kids?
