With temperatures soaring this summer I’ll be spending every free moment cooling off by the water. Whether I’m heading off on a tropical vacation or just the neighborhood pool there are some essentials that I won’t leave home without. Of course there’s the obvious, I can’t live without sunscreen and a great beach read, but these cute sewing projects are must-haves as well.
Before your feet hit the sand be sure to check out these sewing patterns which are both chic and practical. They are sure to make this your most stylish summer yet!
Beach Bag From Recycled Materials – You can’t start packing for your day of sun and fun until you have a great beach tote. In my opinion, bigger is always better when it comes to totes so this beach bag is perfect. It’s also made from recycled plastic so it’s eco-friendly!
Lace Back Tank – Lace is a great addition to your wardrobe this summer. It’s perfect for creating that light, romantic look that’s hot right now. This lace backed tank is a cute sewing project that is perfect for everyday wear and looks great over a bathing suit. All you have to do is sew some lace on one of your old racer-backs to transform a boring basic tank into a summer essential.
DIY Lace Shorts – If you haven’t noticed by now I’m a huge fan of the lacey trend. Denim shorts are always in style but I love how these cut-offs are hemmed with lace. Daisy Duke would be proud.
Lululemon Braided Headband Knockoff – When I’m reading or playing beach volleyball the last thing I want is my hair getting in my face. This Braided headband is a cute sewing project that keeps those unruly beachy waves in their place.
No Sew Eyeglasses Case – There is nothing as aggravating as finding out you scratched your brand new pair of aviators. Make sure this beach tragedy doesn’t happen to you with this No Sew Eyeglasses Case. Just use a potholder to create a safe haven for your shades.
No matter what your beach of choice is this summer, these sewing projects will make sure you are prepared for your day in the sun!
