Day 5 of 21 Days of Creativity
Earlier this week I went on a mini beach vacation with my family. It would have been great if I had brought a beach bag with me because I needed something to hold my beach essentials. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized I could easily make a beach bag using a popular clothing item: a t-shirt. There’s always next time!
Here’s how to make a beach bag out of a t-shirt.
(can be new or used, your choice)
Needle and Thread OR Sewing Machine
Step 1: Iron your t-shirt and lay it on a flat surface. Cut off the sleeves and head opening following the guidelines marked below.
Step 2: Turn the t-shirt wrong side out and align the sleeve openings with one another. Sew a horizontal line 1” above the bottom of your t-shirt.
Step 3: Flip your bag right side out, stuff it with goodies and head to the beach!
Optional: Personalize your bag by placing a cool design on it.
Note: A good thing about this beach bag is that you can just throw it in the washer machine to cleanse it of sand and the smell of sea water.
