Yea for another tutorial! I’m going to show you the other piece to that Summer time birthday gift I made, the Beach Towel Backpack:
I love this bag because not only is it great for carrying sunscreen & other essentials in, the entire towel folds up into the bag. You can pack the bag up and your little one can carry it out to the beach themselves. When it’s time to go, just fold it all up again and most of the sandy mess is contained in the bag. Okay, let’s get started.
A beach Towel
14”x17” piece of terrycloth
Two 66” lengths of cording, rope, or a skein of fluffy yarn cut in 66” lengths
Wide grosgrain ribbon
3. Lay the towel down facing up and place the terrycloth face down on top of the towel centered a few inches above the bottom of the towel, with the casing in the terrycloth towards the top of the towel.
9. Insert the backpack straps: Using a large safety pin or a bobkin (LOVE those things!) thread one 66” length of your strap through the casing in the terrycloth and back through the casing in the towel so that the ends of the strap are together on one side of the bag (like the purple mark on the picture below). Loop one end through the ribbon loop and tie it to the other end. Repeat the threading the same way from the other side of the bag (like the pink mark on the picture below). Pull the drawstrings to close the bag.
10. Hit the beach!
