Make a Double Beach Towel

You go to the beach.
You lay out the line of towels.
Sand creeps up through the crack.
Sand on your bum... Try this quick and easy fix for double towel bliss!
Lay towels right side together and sew just inside the thick ends of the towels' seams.
Be sure to reinforce the ends by going forward and backwards loads of times.
(I wasn't able to take the seam all the to the end because of the thick ends.)
Ta-Da! No sandy bums...
Perfect for beach and picnics.
Happy Almost-Summer!!I'm adding this to The Lazy Organizer's Talk About Tuesday. Just found you while blog hopping and you header pic alone had me hooked!!

Now I'm linking up with Tightwad Tuesday with Canadagirl because a double beach towel will run you up to $50+ bucks... you can make this out of towel you have.

Kinda like a towel blanket...clever.

Now if I could just keep my kids off of my towel, I'd be completely sand free. ;-)

What a great idea! Thanks for playing!!! I'm happy you like my header. I've had it up there for years but I can't seem to part with it. Mostly because I'm too lazy to change it but also because I love it!

Brilliant. Useful. Easy. My kind of project.

Great idea! Plus it can double as a picnic blanket. I need to make one of these. I'm sure will come in VERY handy during the 4th of July parade!!!! Thanks

My mom did this to several of our towels when we were kids. Now as grownups we still have those same towels and still use them for the beach and pool. They are great!!!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

Thanks for the tip. We are going to Florida next month and I'll have to whip up a couple of these for us to take on our trip.

(or actually, I'll have my wonderful grandma whip them up - I don't sew)
