I made this Beach Tote from the rug below. I got it from the Dollar Tree.
Sorry the lighting is so bad.
I swear its the same rug.
I also cut 2 scrap pieces out of drop cloth like the shape below
that I sewed to the back of the rug BEFORE I cut it. Otherwise your rug will fall apart.
I also cut two strap pieces. I sewed the two strips of fabric to cover my large piping.
They mesured 21/4 by 21. Then sew each strap between the pieces in Step 3.
I sewed the bottoms of the bag just like I did HERE.
I printed off my letters. Cut them out of felt and thin yellow flannel.
I then sewed each letter onto drop cloth and cut out.
I then hot glued them to my bag. I also added a little bling.
Now I am ready to hit the BEACH!!
