    I have only finished 8 of my OOT bags but I'm really excited. I am making them out of beach towels - and they open up into a full size towel! I'm still trying to figure out how to post pictures on the site - but I have posted links to my Flickr account

    Here is a picture of it as a bag: bag - closed on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    This picture is harder to see - but it is opened as a towel: bag - open on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Now I just have to make 40 more AND figure out what I'm going to put in the bags! I bought the pattern off of Etsy - so if anyone wants it, I'm happy to send you the seller's information.

        Very good idea, and they look really nice! Did it take a lot of time to sew?

          Ok - I did my homework and can post pictures now.

          Closed - as a bag
          Click the image to open in full size.

          Open - as a towel
          Click the image to open in full size.

          I also got towels in brown and blue - and brown and pink. The only problem is, they're kind of cheap. Because I needed to purchase 96 towels, I didn't want to spend a ton of money. I think each one was about $5 - which means that they're pretty thin. I still think my guests are going to love them.

            They are somewhat time consuming but worth it. I made my own little assembly line. First I cut all the pieces, then I sewed all the straps - and then the rest of the bag. I put my fiance to work as the thread cutter. I would say each bag probably takes an hour, start to finish.
