Iron Craft challenge #32- Summer!

Summer to me means warm weather and time at the pool or beach. We are getting ready to head south to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to see my brother and his family. We love to spend time on the beach, relaxing, playing in the surf and catching some rays. The one thing that drives me crazy is when my beach towel falls down off the top of the chair. That was the inspiration for this week's Iron Craft challenge.

Outer Banks fun

I decided to take a beach towel and modify it. I first added some pockets at the bottom of the towel to hold my sunblock, water (keeping the bottom out of the sand) and my sunglasses when I cool off.

Then I took the top of the towel and made a little pocket there to hold my Kindle or book- don't want it getting wet or sandy. After I made the pocket I folded the towel back on itself and sewed the sides to hold the towel in place so it won't slip down the chair.

Now I am all set for some fun in the sun.
