Make your “Beach Towel With Purchase” Gift into a Non-Branded Cute Beach Bag


victoria's secret beach towel tote

Ever get a free beach towel with purchase but it’s branded all over with the said company. Well right now Victoria’s Secret has a beach towel promotion that you get a free beach towel with purchase, cute pink and white colors, crappy huge “Victoria’s Secret” words across one section.. Let’s just point out the obvious, the last thing I want emblazoned on a beach towel, when I’m in my swimsuit whilst laying down on a towel is “Victoria’s Secret” written right where my crotch is laying. However, this free beach towel is only branded in 1 section, so you can cut that part of and have enough cute pink and white striped fabric left to make a beach bag with pocket.

Here’s my tuut (as in tutorial, I can’t say toot because it reminds me of something else… )


  • 1 beach towel, I used a free one with purchase from Victoria’s Secret
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine with coordinated thread (I used white)
  • Optional: serger (overlock machine)
