Tote-able Towel

Been a little crazy-busy around here which is the reason for the lack of blogging! We've been hitting the beach, going to birthday parties and spending time with family. It's been a lot of fun!

For one of the birthday parties we attended I made a "tote-able towel." This kiddo spends a lot of time at the beach so I tried to think of something that might be of use to him. I didn't think the towel bags would be very appealing to him (ha!) (On that note can I just tell you that the towel bag is getting a lot of use and love? Probably one of the smartest things I've made in a long time!)


I had saved a tutorial that I found a long time ago and decided to put it to use. It's by Anna Marie-Horner and she calls it the "Tote-able Towel." It's a towel that rolls up and has straps attached to it so you can throw it over or across your shoulder. Here's how it turned out:

Here it is all laid out in the sand:

Personalized via appliqued (darn thread kept breaking!)

It was an easy and quick tutorial! Next time I may add a pocket. Go ahead and give it a try! :)
