Beach Towel with Pockets!

Summer is the perfect time to relax and unwind. And, when the warmer weather rolls in, heading to the beach is one of the best ways to make the most of the season!

While soaking up the sun and enjoying time in the water are appealing activities, keeping track of beach essentials while you’re out enjoying the day can be a less exciting prospect. From flip-flops and car keys to sunscreen and reading material, it’s not always convenient to tote everything around that you’ll need for a day of shoreline adventures.

Finding a place to put it all doesn’t have to mean heading to the nearest store and spending too much on an oversized beach bag. Instead, consider a DIY approach and simply add a few functional pockets to a beach towel or blanket you already have.

This clever strategy is simple, convenient, and if you have a sewing machine handy, even quicker than you might have imagined. A DIY beach towel with pockets is the perfect accessory when you want to maximize the outdoor fun while keeping track of everything too.  

Materials You’ll Need

You don’t need much to make this pocketed beach towel a convenient reality. Here’s what you’ll want to grab to get started:

  •  A beach towel or lightweight blanket
  •  Linen or cotton fabric for pockets
  • Measuring tape
  •  Scissors
  •  Iron
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins

With all of these materials in place, you’ll be ready to start up the sewing machine and begin creating a one-of-a-kind beach accessory you’ll never want to leave behind.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Cut out two 14-inch by 14-inch squares of linen or cotton.
  2. Cut each linen or cotton square diagonally into two equal triangles so that you have a total of four triangles.
  3. Fold all of the edges on each of the four fabric squares over half an inch and press the edges smooth.
  4. Fold the long edge of each fabric triangle over another half inch and sew across them.
  5. Lay a lightweight blanket or beach towel out flat.
  6. Pin the fabric triangle to each of the blanket or towel’s four corners.
  7. Sew the short sides of the triangles to the blanket, leaving the long end open.

Once the pockets are securely in place, your beach towel is ready to go! Fill the pockets with essentials and belongings for a beach day that’s fun, efficient, and worry-free.
