Use old towels to make this huge beach blanket. Add a vinyl tablecloth to the back: blocks sand, doubles as tablecloth. Road trip must-have. To be able to machine wash the blanket, I would use Velcro to attach the tablecloth to the towel/blanket.
The Best T-Shirt Dress. This pattern is meant for the Dress A Girl Around The World charity. It's a great dress, especially the bit where she uses iron-in interfacing to prevent stretching out the t-shirt all weird while you sew.
