It rolls up for easy travel with several pockets on the outside for sunscreen, water bottles, or sunglasses.
The handy straps sling over your shoulder for a hands-free walk to the beach or pool.
You can make the pockets any size you like to accommodate books and magazines.
And when you get to the beach? Just unroll your tote and chillax on a comfy towel with a built-in pillow! That book will come in pretty handy right about now.
Here's what you need to make your own beach tote (or one for a friend!):
- two matching towels (I went with oversize bath towels because I thought my sister would like the color better than the beach towels I was finding)
- 1/2 yard fabric for pockets (I used a duck cloth)
- 1/2 yard fabric for straps (I think this was from the canvas/denim section, it was left over from another project)
- stuffing for the pillow
- 12" strip of velcro
