Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should have already completed a sewing pattern prior to beginning this one.

Pattern Description:

Since moving to a state with so many beaches I have designed the bag that meets my needs for carrying just what I need to enjoy the day at the beach. This bag can carry multiple towels or a towel and mat, and the pockets on the inside hold my cash, id, keys, etc., outside are perfect for the sunscreen, flip flops, shampoo, sunglasses, my current favorite book, water bottles, and more!

This bag is designed to have customized pockets, or you can make it exactly like the one you see in the photos. It is tested and you should be able to make this in under three hours. You will learn the technique for adding grommets, making a drawstring sash, making a reversible bag, making a flat bottom bag, and how to customize your pockets.
Are you ready to hit the beach but you need something to hold all of your necessary items? Well you should make this Beach Bag with easy-to-customize pockets on the inside and outside. The drawstring top closes up tight to keep your items safely inside. Learn how to insert grommets, sewing with vinyl, making a tube shape, making a sturdy base, making your own custom-sized pockets among other sewing techniques.

When it is no longer beach season this bag makes a great project bag or laundry bag with a flat, sturdy bottom. Purchase this pattern today, download it immediately, make your beach bag this evening and head for the sand tomorrow! It's even reversible! With all these empty pockets there is plenty of room for water bottles, sunscreen, sunglasses, a book, flip-flops, etc. The main bag is holding a double wide beach towel in the photo.
