Hi! I'm Emily from Domestic Deadline, my piece of the bloggy world documenting the crafts and craziness that side track me from the things I should be doing (dishes... again?). I have three kiddos that keep me on my toes, but I love to craft, cook and create for them and with them.
When I got Angie's email to participate in her Beach Bash, I was so excited! Summer is my favorite time of year, especially when I get to lounge on the beach! Even though I could find a sunny patch on the Jersey Shore any day of the week, my favorite beach is Linwood Park, in Vermilion, Ohio!
What's the best part of the beach on a hot summer day? The water of course! Lounging on a float in the water is always so nice, until I'm trying to remember where the patch is and find the hole!
Time to steel your kid's pool noodle and make your own Lake Lounger! You'll need:
(1) 40 inch by 27 inch home decorator fabric (or double up some left over cotton from your stash)
(1) Pool noodle, go for the wider heavier type if you want to make this for an adults use
Basic sewing supplies
Step 1: Fold over edges of all four side, I used a serger (turned the blade off) but you could also zig-zag all the way around, making the edges sturdier.
PS: This got lots of use on Lake Erie earlier this month! I've already made a few more since the kids loved it so much.
I'll be linking up to some of these parties, stop by and check out the talent!
