Before you sew a beach bag, make a pattern. For pattern is best to use graph paper - it's easier to calculate the size. In a paper prepared by first tracing the outline of the main parts. That we will have a rectangle the size of the parties depends on the desired size of the bag. For example, if we want to half a meter bag width and height of forty centimeters, then draw a rectangle on the paper of this size. Further details traceable handles: strip width of six to seven centimeters and a length of about thirty meters.

Cut out all the details on the circuit and lay them on the wrong side of the fabric, folded in half. By the way, put the main part pattern so that one of the sides of the rectangle passed along fold of fabric. Further, all paper pattern pinned down and draw out, retreating from the edge of the paper pattern a couple of centimeters (SEAM). And already then cut out the pattern of the fabric.

Now add up the rectangle in half (wrong side of fabric to the outside) and stitched by the sides. We get a bag: side stitched, bottom - fold fabric top - "input" into the bag. Inside the seams are sewn by hand or carefully on the sewing machine and iron out. Then stitched by the handle, shortening them to the desired length. Fold in half the workpiece each knob (along the length), facing outwards. The edges of the fabric and folded the two do topstitching - connecting on the edge of the folded edges together and trim - Bend.

Then sew the handle to the front of the bag - one arm on each side of the bag. We do this by combining the edge of the bag with the edge at each end of the handle. That is, first we have to get a handle sewn upside down. Then, the upper edge of the bag with a sewn handle wrap inside edge of the buckle and sew. The result is a neatly sewn handle without a trace of attachment on the front side (all hidden in the hem).

As you can see, sew a beach bag with your hands easy. And if you're applying for originality, use additional decorative elements: fringe, braid, tassels, applique, ruffles, ribbons, and all that you see fit. If you do not like the laconic form of a rectangle, then sew the bag in the form of a trapezoid, extending to the top and make it a top figure.

Experiment with clasp: try to sew a zipper, Velcro, or use the buttons. Or maybe you want option, and even without fasteners? Try to make a fashionable beach bag out of old jeans or tapestry cushion covers. Make extra pockets in her beach bag - internal or overhead. In short, dream! Try to combine business with pleasure.
