Learn How to Sew a Beach Bag from an Old Towel.
It’s a hot day so you pack your bag and go to the beach or the local pool for a dip. After you’ve dried off you want to carry your wet things home, but you don’t want to get your bag wet. What could be a better solution than having a bag made from an old towel? Towels are designed to get wet, after all. Result!
This video shows you how to sew a beach bag from an old towel. Not only is this a practical solution to the wet bag problem, it’s also a great way to use a towel that you no longer need. Somewhere in the back of a cupboard you’ll have one – maybe it’s a towel with a design that the kids have grown out of, or a towel that’s getting a bit thin around the edges. Recycling at its designer best!
All you need for this project is your towel, thread, scissors and your trusty sewing machine. Follow the method shown in the video and in no time at all you’ll have your bag made, giving you more time for that swim and lazing by the pool.
If you want to make your bag more secure, you could add a zipper or see How to Sew a Purse. You could also add pockets inside or out to carry those extra beach necessities such as shades, sun-block or your ipod.
