I am sooo excited to share my second sewing project from my Summer of Sewing Ideas. Also, Click Here to see my Summer of Sewing Project one, the Hand Towel Toiletries Tote.
This time I've made his and hers towel totes for our vacation we are getting ready to take.
I made these out of $5 bath towels I picked up at a Family Dollar store. There are 5 towels between the two totes.

(To save space the pillows in this picture are folded down once. The towel is actually a pillow length longer.)
My inspiration for this project came from Stella Rutherford at The Golden Adventures of a Very Dark Horse. This is her towel tote bag.
I found this fantastic project on Pinterest and have had it pinned for months now. I'm super happy I made these in time to take to Ohio.
To make these I followed Stella's basic tutorial from the link above with only a few changes. I chose not to add the bunting around the sides. Also, I made the pockets out of towel material instead of a linen like hers. Lastly I used two different kinds on Velcro, one strip on the pink towel and three dots on the blue.
I tried to take pictures while I made these but with only two hands, big towels, and a point and shoot nothing I shot came out very good. I'm starting a toddler version made from hand towels tomorrow morning. That post will include a tutorial on how to make these awesome towel totes for the beach.
Until then I hope you like my second sewing project :) Thanks for stopping by!
