Beached Whale... Err... Bag

I finished crocheting the beach bag for my oldest DD's school. They are having a basket raffle to raise funds. Her class is doing a beach themed basket and I decided to make a bag for it. A bag in a basket... is that overkill? Lol.
Photos of the bag with fully finished handles. I had to go out and purchase another ball of yarn as I ran out on the second handle. Yikes! Luckily I was able to get the same dye lot, so it's all good. In total the bag used about 14 ounces of yarn. (I bought four 3oz. balls and then had to buy the fifth for that little bit extra. Plenty left over for some other small project.)
A close up of how the handles look when they are tied together. I thought that it would make the bag more interesting to have tied handles instead of one long flat one. It would also make it easier to adjust the strap size. Simple untie, and then re-tie them in the place that you want them.
The gratuitous hanging bag shot. You can see how big this monster bag is. Yes, I think those oversized beach towels will fit in there quite nicely. Along with a book, some bottled water, a small VW bug and oh yes, the kitchen sink. ROFL. Hopefully it will be a hit and they will get a lot of raffle tickets sold.

Hi K.! Thanks for updating the other entry about the Sugar Babies yarn. You're an angel!
As for the bag, I really like it and think it will be a great addition to the beach basket. LOL...that VW you can fit in it might come in handy! Love your sense of craziness! Sheila
