DIY Portable Picnic Blanket from Clones N Clowns here. I like her idea of using waterproof canvas for the bottom. But you could also just purchase a cheap washable blanket and add the carrying straps (large beach towels would also work).
DIY Easy Spa Wrap or Beach Cover Up Tutorial from La Vie en Rose here. As Auna said in her post this would be a nice addition to a DIY spa gift (like DIY sugar scrubs). This towel stays put and doesn’t slip and is beyond easy to make. I’m going to buy beach towels on clearance this summer to make these for the holidays bundled DIY spa gifts.
DIY Victoria’s Secret Inspired Beach Cover Up Made From Tee Shirts Tutorial from Wobisobi here. Really clever tutorial using two XL tees in different colors to make this cover up that is pretty in the front and back. La Vie en Rose also made a different Victoria’s Secret inspired cover up that I posted here. Wobisobi has also made numerous tee shirt cover ups and tee restyles that I’ve posted here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/wobisobi
DIY Bra to Bathing Suit Top Tutorial from Tasha Delrae here. I love this tutorial! Another blogger recreated the above bra to suit top and also had good results. This is a good way to get a perfect fitting bathing suit top. If you go to the link she used an old bra that had seen better days.
