Beach Towel Wrap

By Mary Mulari, guest blogger and friend of Sewing With Nancy


  • 1 Beach Towel


  • Fold the towel in half lengthwise.
  • Fold again, to create a second fold in the fabric.
  • Mark the foldline on each side of the fabric with pins, as illustrated.
  • Download the neck opening pattern here.
  • The pin-marked foldline will align with the shoulder line on the traced pattern.
  • Place and pin the pattern on the center front fold of the wrap body, aligning the shoulder line marking with the fold mark.
  • Trace the pattern and extend the line down to the bottom of the fabric, 1″ away from the fold.


  • Cut out the neck opening, cutting from the bottom up and around the curved neck opening.


  • Zigzag stitch or serge along the cut edge.
  • Use a large needle to tuck serger thread tails into the serger stitching.
  • Turn the prepared edge to the wrong side, 1/2″. Press.
  • Topstitch a neat edge finish.


This quick wrap is ready for the beach or pool!
