What’s more refreshing than sitting on a beach with a cool breeze floating over you? When I visit my family in Michigan during the warm summer months, we always seem to end up having a big picnic on the beach. While the kids are busy splashing in the waves and flinging sand, the adults can relax for a moment and finally catch up on recitals, tee ball championships, job changes, moves, and all the day-to-day things we’ve missed in the past few months.
For beach gatherings and days at the pool, pack up the troops’ supplies in a customized straw tote. You can finally put to use that assortment of mismatched buttons on your dresser…
Anchor’s Aweigh Lunch Bag
What you’ll need…
Large, woven beach bag in a neutral color
Blue Buttons, assortment of sizes and colors
Hot glue gun
1. Experiment with the pattern you want to create on your beach bag. Layout the blue buttons on a flat surface, and see which layout you prefer – try an anchor, a fish, or a star!
2. Using a hot glue gun, attach the buttons to your bag.
3. Fill the bag with your lunch and head to the beach!
