The first method of our around Beach Blanket I'm calling it the fringe cut because all you need is two yards of fabric and scissors. First, you want to fold your fabric, lengthwise, a hot dog style and then fold it hamburger style and I'm just smoothing it out, because I want to make sure I'm able to cut a perfect circle once you've done that you want to sketch out a half circle and it's kind of hard to explain, but you can kind of see the shape that I'm going for here and you want to do that from one edge of the fold to the other corner.
Once I completed that, I started to cut out my half circle and once I got to the middle part, I just folded the part that I already cut out and folded it on top of the other part. So I can complete the circle and once you're done cutting it up, it should look like this and in case anyone's wondering if you can't find a french terry type fabric like I couldn't find one myself, so I thought that this lycra fabric was really cute for a beach blanket - and I think lycra would be just as fine, because it's kind of the same material that swimsuits are made of so if it does get wet, then no worries.
I really want to apply this for you guys and make it the most cost-effective. So I'm just using scissors to create fringe and I'm just doing that by cutting it all around the edge about three inches high and just a quarter inch wide and pulling them. So they become a little long and create a cleaner look, let me know and I'll be sure to do one showing you how to apply it actual fringe.
So believe it or not the second method for this round beach towel is way more easy than the first method and requires only one step. All I did was take a tapestry that I got on Amazon and I'll link below the exact poem that I use as well as a couple other, affordable ones down in the description box below. Basically, all you do is cut out the design using the circle pattern that the tapestry has, and once you cut it all the way around you can hem it or you can just leave it like that and you're done.
