Beach Towel Bag
To make a beach towel bag you can either use a beach towel, large
towel or a hand towel for a smaller size bag.
You will need:
Beach towel or large towel
Nylon rope, cording or webbing for handles
Lay the towel out on a table and fold the bottom third up to the
middle. Pin a washcloth in the middle.
Unfold towel and sew along three sides of washcloth to make a
pocket. Fold bottom third back in place. Stitch along the two sides.
The top third portion will be a flap that you can tuck into the bag
or drape over the front.
Make the handles by cutting your rope or cording to desired length.
The length of your rope will depend on your size of bag. To make it
stronger I made 2 handles each, 40 inches long. Sew cording on sides
of towel, backstitching several times to make it secure.
Hand Towel Bag
If you don't want such a large bag, use a hand towel and continue
with the directions above. Use 1 yard, which is 36 inches, of
Smaller towel bag using a hand towel.
You can also sew a simple handle by cutting 2 lengths, 12 inches
long of webbing. Sew a handle on each side of the bag. This handle
won't fit over the shoulder like above, it will just be a handle to
carry in your hand.
