DIY Fish Beach Bags (or laundry bags) – free pattern!

Big surprise! TODAY I am flying to Cleveland to the It’s Sew Easy TV studios to film a few segments. This cute Fish Beach Bag is going to be a star and next season you will be able to see me make him too, not just read about it. I can’t wait.

You might remember that I wrote a Fish Laundry Bag tutorial a little while back.

I used mesh to turn my fish laundry bag into a fish beach bag!

I gave this one a pink eye, lol.

This mesh from is kind of stiff, but I like it because it helps the bag keep that cute fish shape. The first mesh bag I sewed softened some with washing, but it is still holding it’s shape.

And you wouldn’t believe how handy it is to have all the sand and water fall out of the bag as we walk back to the car. Yay!

But you don’t have to wait until the episode comes out to make your own. Sew a fish bag for laundry or beach with my free tutorial.

  2. I made two of these for beach/pool bags and used pet screening. Not easy to turn but they look like fish. They boys love them. I wanted something with smaller holes than laundry mesh in case they got caught on something. .
