  • Step 1

    Fold the top and bottom edges of the main fabric
    over twice to make a double hem and stitch in
    place. Fold over the ends once by 1/4 in. (5 mm)
    and stitch in place.

  • Step 2

    Fold each side of the main fabric under by 2 in.
    (5 cm), or to fit the wooden posts, and pin in
    place. Machine stitch down to make a channel for the
    post. Measure 20 in. (50 cm) in from each end and
    make a 2 in. (5 cm) pleat in the fabric (or a pleat
    to fit the wooden post). Pin and machine stitch to
    make the two channels for the remaining posts.

    Fix Bondaweb onto the back of the fabric pieces
    for the applique, following the manufacturer’s
    instructions. Cut three different pieces of fabric for the beach huts, three different pieces of fabric for the doors,
    and three triangles in different fabrics for the
    roofs. Peel away the paper backing on each piece
    ready to add the beach hut design to the windbreak.

    Pin the main part of each beach
    hut onto the center section of
    the windbreak with a gap of
    about 2 in. (5 cm) between
    each one. Pin a triangular
    roof on each hut. Follow the
    manufacturer’s instructions to
    bond everything in place.

    Cut the three circles for the life rings
    in different fabrics. Cut a hole in the
    center of each to make a ring. Cut three
    small triangular flags from different
    fabrics. Arrange the rings, doors and
    flags onto the beach huts. Bond
    the pieces in place as before.
