Simple Sew Beach Bag
8 Easy Steps
First let me say - I am not an expert sewer! You will notice in the pictures that my lines are a little sloppy. The best part about this project is that it truly doesn't matter - it all gets covered up - so don't worry about perfection!
Cut two rectangles of fabric (can be the same fabric or coordinating fabrics - I like using two different!)
18 inches x 24 inches
Cut lining fabric (this will be the lining of the bag - I used a semi-water proof fabric)
18 inches x 48 inches
Cut two strips of lining fabric for straps
4 inches x 30 inches
Sew two rectangles from step one together (outer fabric). Line them up (inside out) and sew one end (24 inches) together.
Line up the outer fabric and lining fabric together (inside out). Now sew both sides together (48 inches). Leave ends open.
Take the two lining strips and fold sides in (about 1/4 inch). Then fold strips in half. (You can iron or pin to hold in place) Sew folded sides together. These will be the straps for the bag.
Fold the ends of the bag inside. Now line up the straps six inches from the edge on each side and place inside of fold. Sew across the entire end. Do this for both ends.
Fold entire bag in half (inside out) and sew the sides together.
Flip right side out and voila! You have a fun & functional beach bag :)
