The beach bag-transformer is indispensable for a summer weekend.
It will freely accommodate bathing suits and sandwiches, and on the beach this bag will turn into a sunbed.
You will need
- - 2 pieces (length - 1 m 60 cm width - 55 cm):
- - bright cotton fabric-
- - material waterproof type lacquer (for the outer side of the bag) -
- - braid (length - 1 m 30 cm, width - 3 cm) -
- - 4 pieces of foam rubber (50 × 39 cm) -
Sew on the front of the bag the necessary number of patch pockets, the upper sections to be treated with braid.
Make slippers: cut 6 pieces of 5 cm length from the braid and sew them two on the front of the bag: from above, from below, in the middle at a distance of 25 cm from each other.
Fold the two kinds of fabric with the front side inward and stitch them on three sides: one short and two long, leaving the fourth side open, into which pieces of foam rubber will be embedded.
Lay all 4 pieces of foam rubber, open the open slice by tucking the allowances inwards. Lay lines between each piece of foam rubber.
Make handles for the bag from the remaining braid. Pull them on the front side of the bag into the belt loops and bring them under the bottom so that the handles come out on the back side. Adjust the length of the braid and fix the ends. Movable handles, depending on the filling of the bag, will allow you to adjust its volume.
You can sew a similar bag with side zippers. To do this, you need to fold the outer sections with foam rubber inward, and to the middle one sew two zippers and short handles equal in length to the foam rubber (39-40 cm).
