DIY -- Beach Wrap

DIY --  Beach Wrap

Hello fellow bloggers!!  I decided to try something different and make a beach wrap pattern from a bath wrap I had in my closet, but after I had already bought the fabric (that I didn't know what I wanted to do with it yet when I bought it). LOL

I was in Joann Fabrics a few days ago to buy specific fabric for a project that I knew I was going to be making in the next few days....when I came across this mesh performance fabric. I don't honestly can't remember buying it...even if it was a few days ago.  This habit is a disease I tell yeah!

 I found this in the back of my closet. My mother bought this for me when I was 17 I think soooo its been there for about 13 years now.

 I drafted a pattern from it.  Something free hand and quick.  I didn't want this to be an all day sewing project.  Just a little 2-hour project to use my machine.

Put it on the fabric and started cutting.  I think that is one of my favorite parts of sewing is the cutting.  Specially with nice sharp scissors. :)

 Really quick and easy sew of the side seams, hem and casing for the elastic all using a stretch zigzag stitch.  No trouble at all, even through the woven part.

I love my EZ-Threader tool.  It makes going through casings sooo much easier than the pull though with a safety pin method.

And here it is finished.  I wish my daughter took them a little closer.  I tried to zoom in but it would have been distorted.  Like I said, it was meant to be a fun, quick and easy 1 1/2 to 2 hour project.  Mission accomplished and I am ready for the beach!!

Until Next Time
