Our customers are always telling us how much they can fit into our Extra Large Beach Bags, often not just when going to the beach!
Here at The Stripes Company we have know this for years, having used these super handy bags for all kinds things including weekends away, packing for the kids, going to the gym or doing the grocery shop! And they never let us down. They are strong, water resistant, hold TONNES and (even if we do say so ourselves) they also look great!
To put these claims to the test we decided to load them up for various situations and see how much we can fit in them – and they didn’t disappoint! See the results on the videos below, and a big thanks to our own Sally for happily packing and unpacking to put these bags to the tests!

How to recover a deckchair canopy from The Stripes Company
Step 1. Preparing Your Fabric
For most deckchair canopies you will need 2m of deckchair fabric cut in half to make 2 x 1m lengths which you will pin and then stitch together.
Step 2. Sewing Together
Iron the seam flat.
Step 3. Measuring Up
You will need approx 3m of bobble fringe.
Note the front and back measurements of canopy frame (back may be narrower)
To find the depth of the overhang subtract your canopy width from the width of the fabric and then divide the remaining measurement by two. Note this down. Do this for front and back.
Step 4. Creating The Corners
Fold the corners and using the previous measurements mark with a pin (remember front and back are different).
Repeat for all four corners.
Stitch and then cut off the surplus fabric from each of the four corners.
Step 5. Adding The Bobble Fringe
Start at a corner seam folding in the edge of the fabric the width of the bobble trim and pin all the way around the canopy before stitching.

However some of our enterprising customers restore and recover their own antique deck chairs. Furthermore, they buy the deckchair fabric from The Stripes Company and recover the chairs themselves.
Stand out from the crowd by adding a splash of colour to your favourite hat with our *NEW* grosgrain ribbon.
Whether you are going to Ascot races or just pottering about in the garden you can truly bring your hat to life!
Use ‘Stitch Witch: Fusible Bonding Web’ and a few tacking stitches to bond the two edges of ribbon together. Hide the join with a loop of ribbon or a bow. If adding a jute flower it is best to stitch into place using double thread.
