My family and I live about 5 minutes from the beach, so we are frequent visitors. When we first moved to Florida we definitely looked like tourists. Over time we learned to stream line, and figured out a few tips and tricks to make the excursion a little lower maintenance. This beach blanket is HANDS DOWN my favorite new replacement/addition to the beach bag!
It is CHEAP, easy to make, dries quickly, sand falls right off, stores compactly, it doesn’t blow away, and doesn’t slowly end up in a small shriveled pile when in use! It is perfect!
Just pull it out, stake it down, enjoy, shake it out, fold it up and go! So easy.
- Twin size flat sheet
- 4 tent stakes
- Sewing machine (or it can be done by hand, it will just take a little more time.)
Begin by cutting (4) 12″ sections of shoe lace. Then tie knots in the 12″ sections of shoelaces. Then fold the corners of the sheet over the loop of shoelace. Pin the sheet in place and then sew! Make sure you really reinforce the stitches! That is pretty much it! Told you it was easy!
It is ready for it’s debut. Just bring along 4 tent stakes!
There you have it, now you can sit back and relax.
