DIY Beach Bags for Every Budget

Every Summer I feel the need to buy a new beach bag. There’s just something about a fresh bottle of sunscreen, a fluffy new beach towel, a new magazine and a great big, new beach bag to throw it all in! As you can imagine though, these things can really add up. If you’re like me, you have a Summer budget to maintain while the kids are out of school. With a bit of fabric you already have at home or a quick trip to the fabric store {or the hardware store?}, you can whip up a new beach bag in no time.

Today I’ve gathered a handful of DIY tutorials that will help you have your new bag and be soaking up the rays by the seashore in no time!
