Just add your sunbathing self to this pic!
 
This project is a little more challenging than the last, though still really a beginner project (because what am I?  A beginner.  Yeah that’s right).  It definitely took me a couple of hours to make this.
You will need:

Cut the 1st towel into the following pieces (you should have a medium sized piece left over)

The instructions (sorry they’re so hard to read on this one): Draw both edges together and pin – leaving 1cm(ish) between the edge of the pillow seam and your new seam, so that the towel lies flat (see the pic below for further clarification…

Then sew!

The pic doesn’t show it, but both handles are on the same part of the towel, the erm, flap.  One on either side of the pillow.

I think velcro will work much better than domes, but either would be fine…

And well, that’s pretty much it.  I don’t know technical sewing terms, so I hope you were able to follow all of that, and if not, were able to figure out how to do it anyway.  The result will be a lovely sunbathing towel with an attached pillow, that can all be rolled up into a bag and carried (with sunbathing items included) down to the beach with you.  It had me hanging out for summer days, that’s for sure.
