Hello there! It’s finally starting to look like Summer here in Indiana and that means beach time and lots of running around. I can always use an XL tote to keep me organized from one place to the next. I created this fun bag from a beach towel!
You can’t even believe how easy it is! I made this in under 30 minutes and you can too! This is the perfect beginner sewing project. ( How cute is this “Tropic like it’s Hot” SVG from LoveSVG?)
The best part is, it’s so easy to throw in the laundry with your other towels, it’s easy to personalize (make one for each of the kiddos with their own name), it’s is so big you can use it for the beach, a diaper bag, sleepovers, you name it – I’m pretty sure it’s going to fit! If you want it a little smaller, it’s really easy to downsize, simply cut your pieces smaller.
I personalized my bag with the Cricut EasyPress. I used the cotton settings and made sure to press from both the inside and outside of the bag. I used Glitter Iron On and Regular Cricut Lite Iron On. (Hint: use code LORRIE and save 10% and get free shipping on Iron On and other Cricut Accessories). I used pretty towels from Walmart, but any beach towel would work. Are you ready for the step by step tutorial?
