WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 1 large towel
- sewing machine
Take your large towel and fold it over itself to form a bag shape.
Cut down your bag to the size you’d like it to be.
I was making the bag for my kids, so I didn’t want it so big
that it was dragging the ground.
Sew around three of the sides – leaving the top open for the bag.
Take the pieces you cut from the short sides of the towel
and lay them into two sets – right sides together – pin one edge –
Fold the long strip over like a hot dog bun – right sides together –
and pin the open edge.
Turn your two straps right sides out and top stitch around all four edges.
Pin the right sides of the straps to the inside/wrong side of your bag.
I pinned mine 2″ in from each side and then sewed it on
in the pattern below for strength.
And there you have your Beach Towel Tote!
