I did a guest post about this bag a while ago, but since we'll be leaving this week and putting it to good use (if the weather cooperates) I thought I'd share it here.
A little background to this project: We go 'Up North' every summer and spend as many days at the beach of Lake Michigan as possible. With four kids and some cousins this requires lots of water and sand toys, and so I came up with: The Leave the Sand at the Beach Bag
What you need:
Outdoor Canvas or Duck Canvas: 1.5 yards, 58" wide.
2 Mesh laundry bags (I got mine at Dollar Tree - they come in at least 3 colors)
Thread, scissors, pins
Put those aside and take out the laundry bags. Cut off the three sewn sides. (green lines)
Now, at this point you need to fold down the hem along the upper edge of the bag and sew it, leaving about 4 inches un-sewn on each end (for matching up later).
