Bags are a unique accessory and useful thing that has been used since time immemorial. There is a huge number of different types of bags, from small ladies to huge road. In summer, beach bags are relevant. Buy them is not difficult, because the manufacturers offer a huge selection of different models in any color scheme. But, you see, it's much more interesting and pleasant to sew an accessory with your own hands, which will become an exclusive model. Exactly the same bag, you definitely will not see anyone else. It is especially pleasant if such a product does not require any serious expenses and you can sew it out of materials that are always found in the house. Today we want to invite you to get acquainted with the sewing of a beach bag made of terry towels. In such a bag not only you can put the necessary little things, but also use it as a lounger (litter) on the beach. So to make an accessory, we need to prepare:
- two towels terry bath, having not too big, but not a small size;
- narrow pillow, not very big (there should be a few towels already);
- pieces of colored fabric (preferably cotton or other natural material);
- buttons selected at your discretion, and loops;
- sewing pins;
- thread corresponding color;
- sewing sharp scissors for cut;
- Iron (needed for ironing the edges of the fabric;
- sewing machine.
We need to take a prepared pillow of rectangular shape, the dimensions of which are slightly smaller than the terry towels we have chosen for the product. We need to put a pillow on one of the towels andfold it along with its edge as shown in the photo. It turns out, so-called, a pocket or compartment, in which there will be a pillow for lying down during rest. The edges are chipped and stitched. We leave a few centimeters of towels with a view to sewing the second one to it, and then cut off the rest. On the edges of the second towel we need to sewstrips from the chosen cotton fabric. It can be a strip combed from different patches or you can use only one fabric, as you like. The strip is a rectangle, the length of which will correspond to the length of the towel itself. The width of the rectangle will be approximately ten centimeters. At the edges, the strip is bent inward from both sides by one centimeter and is well ironed. Now we need to sew the finishing strips tothe edges of the towel and sew both the details of the bag together (a towel with a pillow and a second towel). Sew all the sewing machine. When we turn the sewn parts together, we get the product, as in the photo below. To our bag you need to add the necessary details,tonne pockets for small things. For this we need to prepare two identical square scraps of colored fabric (cotton). One end of each of the squares must be handled, otherwise it will be disheveled. It will lose the presentable appearance not only this detail, but the whole product. We pin the pocket in the right places (behind and in the front of the product) with sewing pins, and then we pierce it. Not sewn we leave only that part, which we pre-processed with a machine seam. From the first towel we have a piece. It is from him that we will sew handles for our beach terry bag-bedspread. For sewing these details, we need to cut two strips, wide enough, since we have to add them in half. The edges of the bands are folded and we spread out on the sewing machine. Do this all along the length of the part. Pin pins in the places where they aremust be. Now be sure to check if the position and length of the handles are suitable for you. If everything suits you, we sew the handles with a sewing machine. Where the product should be closed, we sew two buttons of any size and color, it is better to choose bright ones, as seen in the photo below. On the second side (on the lid of the product) we sew the eyelets corresponding to the size of the buttons. Sewing a beach bag of terry towels is completed. Now you can safely go with her to rest. It is not only aesthetically and eccentric, but also a very practical product.
