If you’re planning a trip to the pool, river, beach this summer, you’ve got to whip up this painless pool tote lined with laminated cotton. Throw your wet towels in and you don’t have to worry about them getting water spots on the car seats or even forgetting about them in the car (hey…don’t judge…we’ve all done it!)

The only thing extra you might want to pick up, as far as sewing machine accessories, is a teflon foot. Teflon feet are absolutely amazing when it comes to sewing any sort of “sticky” fabric. So if you run your hand over it with pressure, and it doesn’t smoothly run across the fabric, a teflon foot will easily sew it! Some great examples are glitter vinyl, regular vinyl, oilcloth, and laminated cotton. Any fabrics that look like they have a sheen or platic-y finish. Personally, I love to sew with weird fabrics, so I’ve had a teflon foot for a while now. But if you don’t stray from the beaten path very often, now is the time to stray!!! You will love the teflon foot, and have so many more interesting sewing options.
