here's a silly one i put up just to enter mikes summer hacks contest: last summer a friend challenged me to upcycle his broken umbrella into something useful. i wanted to do better than a chandelier so i used the part most upcyclists would overlook to make a beach bag. simply sew then ends over, run some cordage through and enjoy a simple, waterproof cinch bag - with built in sand removal system.

thanks for watching,


Wish you would've made this ible for real!
it really was this simple: carefully pull material from frame. fold over and sew the pointed ends (i did 1&quot; width). run a cord or rope through that is about twice as long as needed and tie the ends together. that's it!<br><br>thanks for watching,<br>tim
<p>Awesome idea! Great job! I love the sand removal system :)</p>
thanks again, danger!
