Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic quilting and sewing techniques

Pattern Description:

This oversize quilted tote has separating zippers on each short side. Just unzip them and unfold the ends for a colorful beach mat for lazy summer days. When the mat is zipped and folded into the tote, you can tuck the small matching pillow inside, along with your reading materials and other larger items. Use the two outside pockets for other necessities--sunglasses, lotion, cell phone-you decide!

You can stitch this project in an evening and head to the beach the next day! Two zippers, binding, outside pockets, and straps, and your tote/mat is finished! Straight stitching and binding make quick work of the matching pillow.
