Need the perfect beach bag?
I got you covered.
This beach bag is made out of Phifertex Standard Solids and an outdoor fabric so it is super cute, waterproof, and most importantly, allows sand and crumbs to pass through the bottom of the bag while keeping your valuables safe. This bag is super customizable, so you can make it in any color combination and size.
They are inexpensive to make and make great gifts. Here’s how you can make your own!
Test a scrap piece of fabric to make sure it won’t melt before hand.
Take the long edges of all four other rectangles and iron them in ¼” to hide the raw edge. Use a low heat setting. You may want to pin the edges down after if your fabric does not lay flat. You can just take these pins out as you sew in the next step.
Remove the pins as you sew.
Clip the two 8” rectangles ½” away from where the Phifertex notches in to create the bottom of the bag on both sides. Sew these pieces on by stitching up both long sides of the triangle. Don’t worry about the short edges, they will be sewn on when you construct the bag.
Fold the bag so the right sides are facing, clip up the edges, making sure the trim pieces line up with each other. Sew both edges.
Open the seam you just sewed and clip it so it lays flat against where the template notched in. Sew this on both sides
Finally, flip the bag right side out.
