Make It Monday! Make Your Dolls A Beach Tote!

Today I wanted to share with you a easy way to make your dolls a sturdy beach tote! This weekend was the unofficial start of summer and with that comes bathing suit and beach weather!
To make your own beach tote you are going to need:
-Fun Foam
-Duck Tape

 Step 1- assemble all your supplies. Cut out your bag pattern from the fun foam. This will give it structure when you cover it with the tape.
Step 2- Cut two rectangles 4 inches by 2 inches these are the sides of your bag
 Step 3 - Cut 2 rectangles that are 2 inches by 1 3/4 inches wide, these are the short sides.
Step 4- Cut 1 rectangle that is 4 inches by 1 3/4  for the bottom

Step 5- Use your tape to assemble your bag, adding more a tape along the bottom edges and sides as you go.
Step 6- Create handles with 2, 6 inch long pieces of duck tape, fold one long edge into the center of the tape and repeat with the other long edge, repeat on the other piece.
Step 7- Fold and tape your handles into place and line the inside of your beach bag with more of the tape.
Step 8- Fill with your dolls beach needs, I used a doll sized towel, sunglasses and camera.
