Beach Basics and Beyond




Beach Basics and Beyond   KM126

Children will want to wear these everywhere, not just to the beach.  Mesh is the key to making these fast and easy projects!  The fabric beach ball with a real beach ball inside is big hit!  The shirt base is a purchased T-shirt and the design possibilities are endless.  We know you won’t make just one.  They make great gifts. The mesh pocket comes in handy when collecting seashells.  In addition to the T-shirt designs a skirt and headband pattern are included.  Mesh washes beautifully!
