Introduction: Umbrella Beach Bag

About: i am an artist and musician. i make things of use out of things that no longer have use. i think the hip term is "upcycling." i post a lot of inspirational and entertainment videos on youtube.com/timsway. occa…

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,

tim

    it really was this simple: carefully pull material from frame. fold over and sew the pointed ends (i did 1" width). run a cord or rope through that is about twice as long as needed and tie the ends together. that's it!
