Hooded beach towel backpack tutorial

Make an adorable hooded beach towel backpack so they can carry their own towels! This easy tutorial will help you make a towel into a backpack!

Make your own hooded beach towel backpack! Our weather has cooled off a bit lately. We still brave the beach. It doesn’t bother us northerners.  Backpacks 1 Couldn’t be cuter, right? And how about those backpacks? That’s right, a hooded towel that folds up into a neat little backpack. This has solved my problem. My main problem. You know, the one where I don’t have 3 sets of hands to carry things and children.  Backpacks 2 Even the baby gets her own. It is lightweight enough for her to wear it comfortably. In fact, she doesn’t just wear it to the beach. It’s now an accessory… Backpacks 3 It’s important to snuggle up in a warm towel when you are at the beach on a less than hot day in June. Backpacks 5 And once at the beach… Beach … we played in the sand. Because playing in the water on a less than hot day in June isn’t as much fun as we’d like.     Want to make your own Hooded Beach Towel Backpack? I’ve made a tutorial so you can whip up a few.

    I can’t wait to start on one for my grandson. I can put a strap to hold his sand pail on the backpack. Thank you for the idea.

    I love this idea and have already made one for my granddaughter. I will include a pic if I can. I changed it a bit and put material around the hood on the outside and appliqued some of the MLPs onto the towel and I also used that material for the back of the pocket because my towel was too thick (I did, indeed, break 4 needles lol). I have a shop on EBay and Etsy and sell on websites here in San Antonio. I wanted to know if I could make these backpack towels and sell them in my shops. I would refer back to you as furnishing the pattern. Please let me know as I would really like to get started. I have to make 6 more for grandchildren and great grandchildren before I can get started on selling. Thank you for your wonderful pattern. I am still experimenting with it.
    Thanks, Sharon Erickson
