I've got another beach towel project for you! When I purchased that fabulous zebra beach towel (for cheap) to transform into hand towels, I also bought a few more to create with! I knew that I wanted to come up with some colorful and fun tote bags for the beach and pool this summer!
Thanks to Target these towels were $2.50 and I selected a few different bright colors and patterns.
I started by cutting wide strips of towels.
fyi- cutting up towels can me messy! Don't wear your favorite block yoga pants unless you are ok with getting tons of towel fibers all over them!
I picked blues and greens to pair together and laid them out in the size that I wanted- a front and back for the tote- roughly 11" X 20".
I sewed the strips together.
I used an extra piece of towel for the lining
and for the strips that were sewn into handles.
I sewed the handles on and then sewed the sides and bottom together
The result is a SUPER cute and TOTALLY functional beach bag!
Since I can never make just one of anything I made another bag but for this one I used squares sewn together!
