One of the basics you simply cannot do without – a beach tote. This free pattern and tutorial shows you how to make one for yourself, using the trendy pom poms!

This simple yet practical unlined zipper pouch is a multi-tasker. It will turn into a cosmetic bag for your toiletries, or house your necessities at the pool.
