In these snowy winter days, it’s great to go sledding, make a snow sculpture, and drink a cup of hot cocoa.
. . . And sometimes it’s nice to dream of warmer days. How about making a sarong for your swim suit?
You can sew one very easily with just straight stitching & is a great project for learning to sew. Look for some fabric on sale since you’ll be using a 2-3 yards. Try to get fabric that is not 100% cotton unless you like the wrinkly look or you don’t mind ironing. A 65% cotton/35% poly would work pretty well. Some people like a semi-sheer fabric in a print to coordinate with their suit. I have a semi-sheer one in plain black that I like because it goes with all my suits.
When traveling, you can use a sarong for going to the pool or beach & then spread it out to lie on if you like. It could also work as a shawl or head scarf if you are touring a cathedral in a country that requires your head and/or shoulders to be covered. You can also use it as a sort of blanket on an airplane or bus if you might be napping. Or to cover up your backpack/bag/purse to help prevent theft. Or to use as a curtain in a hostel. It could be an emergency skirt. Well, you get the idea.
