how to make a mesh beach bag: 7 steps (with pictures)
I love the mesh of the beach pack because the sand won\'t be collected at the bottom and it will fall straight down!
I also added a pocket for the phone, keys, etc.
Because I want to keep them away from the sand.
This instructable is more about how to successfully stitch the mesh than other aspects of this package, because it is very simple and there are other guides.
For this project you need :-mesh-scissors-pins-
Tape of the strap
Small pieces of fabric for pocketvelcro-
Ultra-wide double folding bias band (
Or do it yourself)-
The sewing machine determines how much bag and pocket you want and cuts it off.
You can really make your bag in any size.
I want my 20 inch wide, 12 inch high and 6 inch deep.
To make the bag, you should cut out 3 rectangles, two small ones for the side and one large one for the side and the bottom.
The pocket can be any size and you can do as much as you want.
You need a piece of fabric to fold and become a pocket, a smaller cloth to close the pocket.
Hem the top of the pocket fabric with the wrong side and sew the three sides of the pocket together.
For the top of the pocket, cut off a length of bias tape for each side, arrange it so that the fabric can be stitched at the fold of the bias tape.
Cut a section of velcro, sew one piece in front of the top of the pocket, and one under the pocket flap.
Pin your pocket where you want it, sew it on the bag, leaving about 1/4 of the seam allowance.
I found it easier to sew the pocket before sewing the rest of the bag.
Nail the flaps on the bag to make sure the velcros are aligned and sewn to the top.
This is the most challenging part.
It can be a huge pain to sew the mesh itself.
It has a slight elasticity that can be sucked into the sewing machine and wrapped together, you say, it may happen to me.
To avoid this, I have found some feasible techniques.
They are merged into accents for this bag instead of trying to hide the seams.
Cut enough long bias bands for each side.
Starting from a corner, start fixing both sides of the bias band and grid together.
I found it easier to parallel the pin to the fabric rather than perpendicular to the fabric, just take it carefully when the sewing machine reaches the pin.
Start with another corner, repeat, and then do the same thing at the bottom.
The side of the bag should now be sewn together.
Repeat the same process on the other side.
You should finish the main part of the package now!
If you really don\'t want such seams, you can use transparent tape, wax paper, floral paper or parchment paper in a similar way, but it will be peeled off after sewing, because this mesh is slightly elastic, so just leave the thread of the stitching, I know I can\'t open the handle as usual, because the whole bag will stick out, so I use a big strap to make the handle under the bag, hang on the side of the trouble that forms the handle.
You can decide how long your handles are and where exactly you want them to be, but I highly recommend putting them under the bag to prevent the mesh from stretching too much.
Nail the strap in place and sew it down with two seams.
I added the straps to the top of the bag for extra support as there is nothing that sticks the mesh together and I don\'t want it to stick out too much.
It also increases the stiffness of the mesh and makes it easier to throw things into the bag and go out and you don\'t have to wrestle with it.
Nail in place and sew with two seams.
Make sure that the two seams stitch the mesh and the straps.
Be careful with overlapping parts, but don\'t worry too much.
When it\'s all stitched together, it\'s barely visible!
You have a super cute beach bag right now!
You know how to use mesh! Awesome!
