I love the beach and wanted a bag I could take all of my stuff in and that would keep the sand out so I came up with this nifty and easy to sew drawstring beach bag.  It is large enough to carry all of the essentials but small enough to be easily portable.  I hope that you will all give this project a try.

What you will Need:

  • 1 yd of natural canvass
  • 1/2 yd. Nautical Themed Cotton
  • 1 1/2 yds of lining fabric
  • 1/2 yd interfacing such as Pellon 809
  • 2 3/4 yds of cording
  • Standard sewing supplies

What you will Need: Drawstring Beach Bag

Step 1: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Cut your fabrics to the following dimensions:

  • Bottom canvas:  37 7/8″ x 16
  • Bottom circle of canvas: 12 5/8″ in diameter
  • Top Nautical Cotton Fabric: 37 7/8″ x 8
  • Interfacing: 37 7/8″ x 13
  • Lining: 37 7/8″ x 31 1/2″
  • Lining bottom: 12 5/8″ in diameter

Step 2: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Fuse the interfacing to the top cotton fabric.

Step 3: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Sew the cotton fabric to the canvas right sides together along the long edge. Top stitch along the canvas side of the seam.

Step 4: Sew a Drawstring Beach Ba

Measure down from the top 2 3/8″ and 3 1/8″ and place two marks.  With right sides together, sew the short sides together leaving an opening between the two marks.  This will be the channel for the drawstring.

Step 5: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Sew the bottom of the bag to the cylinder you have just created. Turn the bag right side out.

Step 6: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Sew the short sides of the lining pieces together and add the bottom leaving an opening for turning.

Step 7: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Insert the right side of the bag into the right side of the lining matching the side seams.  Sew around the top using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Turn the bag so that the Lining is right side out and sew the opening closed using ladder stitch.

Step 8: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Top stitch around the top of the bag.

Step 9: Sew a Drawstring Beach Bag

Sew two lines around the bag even with the lines you marked for the draw string opening.  Insert the cord into the casing.  I added some cord stops for decoration.
