Cute Cover-Up
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

With a towel and a few trimmings, you and your kids can craft these cool beach and pool cover-ups.

What you'll need

  • Towel (ours was 17 inches long and wide enough to wrap around a child's waist with 5 inches of overlap)
  • Fusible bonding web (we used Stitch Witchery)
  • Large yarn needle
  • 1 (8-inch) piece of elastic
  • 1 large button
  • Fabric glue
  • Decorations (lace, ribbon, or whatever you choose)

How to make it

  1. Measure and cut a towel to fit your child, preserving 2 of the hemmed edges (ours were 17 inches long and wide enough to wrap around the kids' waists with 5 inches of overlap).

  2. Fold over each of the cut edges and seal them with fusible bonding web.

  3. For a fastener, use a large yarn needle to make 2 holes (about 1/4 inch apart) near one upper corner. Slip the ends of an 8-inch piece of elastic through the holes, then knot them.

  4. Wrap the cover-up around your child's waist, then sew a large button in place to hold the loop. Finally, use fabric glue to add lace, ribbon, or other decorations.
