How to Make a Beach Bag

January 16, 2020

hi guys it’s alyssa from online fabric
store today I’m going to show you how to make a phifertex peach bag this bag is
perfect for Beach trips because the open weave of the phifertex allows sand to
pass through while keeping your stuff secure so let’s get started
the materials you will need are one yard of phifertex fabric I am using a red
standard solid outdoor fabric a dritz loop turner pins or clips thread
scissors chalk a ruler the template which can be downloaded for free on our
website and iron and board and a sewing machine print cut and tape together the template
use it to cut out the phifertex also from the outdoor fabric cutout two 19
by 5 inch rectangles – two 19 by 8 inch rectangles and – two 35 by 4 inch strips fold the long strips in half with right
sides facing and clip the edges sew up the edge flip the strap right-side out using a
Dritz loop Turner iron it so the seam is directly in the center and it lays flat
make sure to use a low heat setting on your iron take the long edges of all
four rectangles and iron them in a quarter of an inch to hide the raw edge
you may need to pin this in place click the top edges of the phifertex a
and a half of an inch and sew them down so you hide the raw edge clip the two eight inch rectangles a
half of an inch away from where the phifertex notches in to create the
bottom of the bag do this to both sides sew these pieces on by stitching up both
long sides of the rectangle don’t worry about the short edges for now they’ll be
sewn on when you construct the bag then clip the five inch rectangles a half of
an inch away from the top of the phifertex on both sides also clip each
end of the strap three inches away from the center of the bag on both sides in
between the phifertex and the outdoor fabric sew these pieces on by stitching up both
long sides of the rectangle fold the bag so the right sides are
facing clip up the edges make sure that the trim pieces line up with each other
sew both edges fold the bottom corners closed so the
seam that you just sewed is in the center and clip it down so this on both
sides finally flip the bag right side out and now your bag is complete thanks for

    Thank you for this project, I have seen them but had no idea how to make them. The video was a bit blurry. I wonder if it was your camera or my computer. Thanks again I will give this a try.

    What kind of needle do you need to sew through the mesh?

    great tutorial on this beach bag, but HOLY it becomes a rather pricey bag, using the phifertex all the way through the bag
    …and… THANKS….. for NOT showing us how to use the dritz loop turner (you get money though, each time someone clicks on the link TO it)….. but you don't bother to show how it is used!!!
    NICE ONE!!
