Remember the last sunhat I made? Well, scraps from that sunhat reminded me of a fish. So, I made a zippered fish bag for my little guy.
All sorts of things have been and can be stored in this. My little guy filled it with his favorite fishing game.
He's a big fan of carrying his "bag" when we go places, just like his mama.
He also has been pretending to shop too using the wooden cart I made...he says "Bag shop" and off he goes to buy important things. Like trains. Shopping at home is the best, so he'd say. No pants required.
Here's the pattern.
Directions (1/2 inch seam allowance provided):
1) Cut two fish shapes.
2) With right sides together, stitch on bottom edge from ends to the x. Baste between the Xs. Press open and install 7 zipper (Go slowly, the curve is tricky). Remove stitches between the Xs.
2) Pin 8 inch strap in between right sides, matching cut edges, where the "bag handle" x is.
3) Finish stitching along edges. Notch seams if needed around curves. Finish edges. Turn rightside out and press.
