How to make a beach towel and beach bag 2 in 1?

What you need

2 terry towels (new or old, whatever)

a flap pillow

How to do

1. Take one of the towels and spread it out in front of the pillow.

2. Then, cut the edges of the towel, so that it is a little wider than the pillow (if necessary, you can always reduce the width later).

Lay the towel next to the pillow to point out the width of the cutout.

3. Take the other towel and wrap it around the pillow. Take care to leave a strip of the towel protruding along the bottom of the pillow.

Keep the cutouts that will be used to make the handles of the bag.

4. Remove the pillow and sew the first side.

5. Then, sew the second towel along the bottom of the pillow.

Prepare pieces of fabric to make the borders of the homemade beach bag.

7. Fold the strip in half along its entire length.

8. Then cut it lengthwise to make two equal strips.
