For the Beach

Or if you live in Missouri like us, for Oceans of Fun.

I made the flip flops by just tying strips of fabric around the straps. The small tote is from an old pair of jeans. I love the big pocket on the front.

The cover up is simply made from a towel.

I put Velcro on the first 9" of each end and then elastic in the rest and added the ribbon trim.

You really didn't think you would see me modeling it, did you?
I begged Jalynn and she gave in to me!

Here are all the fabulous parties I'll be linking to this week.

This reminds me of something that my mom made my friends when we graduated high school and went off to college. This towel is great for dorms with hallway bathrooms!
