Beach Bag
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

This sturdy, washable sack comfortably fits a kid's shades, Frisbee and flip-flops, with plenty of room left over for shells and sea glass.

What you'll need

  • Scissors
  • Hand towel
  • Washcloth
  • Pins
  • Button or snap, optional
  • Embroidery needle and thread (or a sewing machine)
  • 1 yard of 1/2-inch-thick nylon rope (available at hardware stores)

How to make it

  1. Clip any fringed edges off the hand towel, then fold it in half. For a pocket, position and pin the folded washcloth on one side of the bag. Unfold the bag and sew on the pocket. If you like, you can attach a button or snap at the top of the pocket to keep it from hanging open.

  2. Fold the bag in half again. Stitch together the sides of the bag, either by hand or on a machine.

  3. Using the scissors, carefully poke a hole through both sides of each top corner of the bag. Thread one end of the handle into each hole, then knot the ends of the rope to secure.

  4. Fold the bag in half again. Stitch together the sides of the bag, either by hand or on a machine.
