beach towel bag

I know, beach towel bags again?  This is actually an easy project but hard to explain.  I will do my best. 

Supplies needed
1 beach towel of your choosing
1 regular towel in coordinating color or not cut in half length wise
1 yard of rope

First lay your regular towel out and fold in half hot dog style.  Cut down your fold.  I would suggest serging or zig zagging this side to control the fray before you do anything else.  

Next you are going to fold over the ends of your regular towel that you just cut in half.  Fold over about 2-3 inches.  You will be putting rope through this so make it big enough that it will hold it but be fairly easy.  When you get that done, pin your regular towel onto 1/4 of your beach towel with the part that you will put your rope through above the towel.  Sew the towel on and then fold up the rest of your towel and sew it on.  I put my towel on the white side of the beach towel.  When all sewed up,  fold up beach towel and flip into bag and tada you have a beach towel bag.  You can stuff your flip flops and and extra clothes, sunscreen, a book, whatever it is all there. 

Have fun at the lake with your new towel.
