A Simple Drawstring Beach Bag

A very basic drawstring beach bag.


A towel is sewn into the bottom hem of the lining of the beach bag.


When beach time is over, fold the long ends of the towel to the center.


Roll and then tuck the towel into the bag, inverting the bag so that the towel and the pocket is now on the inside. The large interior zippered pocket is the same size as the length and width of the bag and is meant to hold suntan lotion and valuables. This is especially helpful if one should fall asleep while sunbathing. If someone tries to take your bag, they will have to take you along with it! When you get home from the beach, toss the bag/towel combo into the wash. Couldn't be easier!


Have a fabulous day!

Aloha!

I love the little bag at the side,
and I would love to have a beach somewhere to take the bag to, so I think in my case it would be a shopping bag (Hehe)
But thats a good idea too.
Did I invite you to my giveaway?
I don´t know, so I do now.
Join it if you like and
hHave a wonderful week
