Beach Towel Bag Tutorial....
- 1 Beach Towel (I bought the cheapest at Walmart)
- 5 yards gros grain ribbon (just to be safe)
- Sewing machine
- Thread to match ribbon
Step #1- Fold the towel in half
Step #8- Sew the bottom of the bag... do NOT sew any of the sides or the top. You still want to be able to open it up fully to attach the ribbon. Step #9- open your bag up and lay it front side up on the floor or on a table. Step #10- Pin your handles all around your bag. I made the actual handle part of the bag 32". You will want to make sure the ribbon covers the side of your pockets. Step #11- Sew right on the edge of your gros grain ribbon... sew both sides. Step #12- Fold the towel right sides together. Step #13- Sew down the side of your bag (starting at the top) until you are about 6-8 inches from the bottom of the bag. Step #14- Open up the part you didn't sew and ... ...put that part together. Step #15- sew the open part together. (I hope these pictures make sense) Do this on both sides of the bag. It just makes a flat bottom to the bag. Step #16- Flip your bag right side out and you will have an awesome bag to take to the pool!!! Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
