Prepare the lining with a zipper pockets (use the 12 cm-zipper)-->see my instructions:

Make also an elastic holder for your mascara, eyeliner, lippstick,...:

Use a piece of fabric, about 4 x 20 cms, iron interfacing material on back side, the sew a trim ribbon on each side and pin the elastic band with various loops, then sew it several times -because it should hold if you take your cosmetics in and out.

Then sew it on the other side of the lining.



Sew also two small straps (use a stronger material) for the halfrings.

Fold the cotton material to half (mark the middle left and right side with it a pencil - pin the two 24 cms -zippers -start from the middle of the upper edge until the mark of the left and right side, insert the prepared halfrings - one each side, then sew it, turn it, iron it carefully (don´t iron over the sequins !)




After having sewn the zippers pin the prepared lining upside down and sew alls again.




If you like you can make a strap with a trimming ribbon and a piece of velcro for closing. -- > Foto



For the handle prepare a ribbon of 170 cms length, sew a carabinder hook on each side.




Now you can go to the beach, having all the cosmetics and sun protection, towels,...with you.




Have beautiful days at the beach !
