DIY Sew: Beach Bag

In preparation for my mini vacation this weekend for my fiancé's birthday I decided to make myself a beach bag.  I had some burlap laying around and figured it would be an easy enough project.

Step 1: Cut 1 piece of burlap 19" by 34" and a second piece 3" by 50"
Step 2: Fold the edges of the 19" by 34" piece in twice on both ends, pin and sew
Fold the 50" by 3" piece in half, pin and sew, your piece should measure 1 1/2" by 50"

Step 3: Cut the 50" by 1 1/2" piece in half; you should now have 2x 25" by 1 1/2 inch pieces

Step 4: Pin and sew the Straps onto your bag (straps 7 inches apart)

Step 5: With straps touching (wrong side up) sew up the right and left sides of the bag
Step 6: measure 2 1/2 inches up from each corner (2) pin and sew
Step 6: Turn right side out. Use a stencil and paint on the first letter of your last name (in my case, my future last name)
