The Sand-Free Beach Tote is a super fun summer accessory that’s perfect for beach or pool! This fully illustrated PDF pattern has all the information you’ll need to make one (or two!) for your family.
The tote starts out as a circle blanket to use at the beach or for a picnic. Then when you pull the straps, the edges gather to collect all the “stuff” in the middle and it becomes a bag. The mesh panel at the center becomes the bottom so all the sand can filter through and not end up stuck in the bottom of the bag. We’ve used the original tote I made for a few years now at the pool and LOVE it. When we get home from the pool I throw the bag (minus the toys) in the washer and since the mesh is that laundry bag type of mesh the whole thing launders great!
