I saw this cabana bag in this catalogue & I thought it was really clever with the screen in it, I knew that I had to try to come up with my own, sew here is my version. the 2cd picture is the inside I made it sew it would hold a water bottle. & the other side has an evelope zipped pocket & it has a snap tag to hold keys too! I am pleased with the result & am looking forward to some warmer weather sew that I can use it. I still have to add a foam core for the bottom of the bag.

I used fibreglass insect screening 36"x 40" tube & it costs about $15 Canadian. sew pricey It is really soft screening too sew it was ok to sew with but I did make sure that the raw edges were sewn over @least twice sew as not to poke holes anywhere. Plus the fabric covers all the "ends" too. probably ok to wash but will hang to dry. Thanks everyone Hugs Loralye

For those who did not know, there is a cloth screen that can be used for bags. It embroiders beautifully. You did a great job with this bag.

The water bottle holder will be handy. Was the screen hard to sew with? I have visions of it shredding strand by strand. lol
