Cute... check! Useful... check! Easy... check! I think these Fish Laundry Bags are a must-make! I listened to my readers who wanted this fish shaped drawstring bag to have 2 pattern pieces for lots of opportunities for creativity. On one fish, I used Hex Mesh fabric on the bottom portion. On the all-fabric bags I added just a touch of embellishment. You could topstitch some lines, but I decided to sew simple narrow pintucks with contrasting thread instead. If you like this pattern, be sure to check out my Craftsy class Colorful Patchwork Bags and Baskets, with lifetime access and a 100% money-back guarantee. Here's my personal link for 50% off: BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sew straight and curved seams Press seams Topstitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 26'' x 18''

My name is Caroline and I want to inspire you to sew by showing you something beautiful every day. I have four children and a room full of fabric. Sewing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Since I started having kids most of my sewing is for them and our home. For years now my browser's bookmark files have been filling up with project ideas that I need to try. It's helpful because people often ask me if I know how they can make such-and-such, and I tell them I'll just go home and email you the link to a tutorial. Well, now I get to share those tutorials with anyone who will look (or sign up for my newsletter). If you follow along with us on She Sews! the SewCanShe blog, we'll explore new tricks and techniques and show off our work every Saturday in our linky party.
