DIY Beach Bag Made out of a Beach Towel
Makes 1 beach bag (20″ w x 18″ h)
1 beach towel
2 (56″) pieces of 1″ wide cotton webbing (medium weight)*
*You can find cotton webbing at your local fabric store or online. It comes in many fun colors.
Cut 2 rectangles that are 20″ wide and 18″ tall. (Cut through both thicknesses of the towel so that you only have to cut out one rectangle).
Repeat with the other rectangle and piece of webbing.
Note: If you don’t own a serger (I don’t own one) you can zig zag around the sides and bottom to keep the edges from fraying.
Turn your bag right side out.
I made it large enough to hold at least 4 beach towels and a few accessories like sunscreen or a box of ice cream bars!
