Swimsuit Cover-Ups

Hey! My picture posted! That means I can start writing on my blog again!  There’s been soo many things I’ve done that I wanted to post but for some reason wordpress was being wierd and I couldn’t get pictures to upload.  A post without pictures is just boring.

I made swimming suit cover-ups for the girls after I saw some at Costco.  I can’t remember what the price was on them but I thought, really, for a little tiny piece of terry cloth it costs that much?! I had this ugly old beach towel in the linen closet that I didn’t like at all so I cut it up and sewed some velcro on it and there you go, {FREE} swimsuit cover-ups. The girls are little enough I was able to get two out of one towel.  They don’t look too cute, but at the end of the season I’ll buy a new beach towel when they go on sale and make nice ones for next year.  Lucky for me the girls don’t really care what they look like, but I have a feeling that’s going to change pretty quick.

The towels are still a little wet because we just got back from the splash pad, so please excuse the water spots! My older girl is 5 years old and the length that worked good for her is 24 inches long.  The width is just the width of the towel.  The straps are 11 inches long (you could shorten this by and inch or two to bring it up higher) and 1.5 inches wide on both the cover-ups.  My little girl is two years old and hers is 18 inches long and the width was just what was left over after the straps were cut out of the towel.   The raw edges were folded over and zig-zagged, if I had a serger I would have serged them.  Let me know if you have any questions! I’m happy to be back posting again!
