Free Project – DIY Fish Laundry Bag

May 26, 2016   /   byFree Designs Admin  / Categories :  Free Printables, Free Project, Free Sewing Patterns


Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew straight and curved seams
  • Press seams
  • Topstitch

Pattern Description:

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.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 26” x 18”


  • 1 yard of fabric (1 or 2 different kinds)
  • ribbon or twill tape may be used for the ties (optional)
  • felt scraps for the eye

You Will Also Need:

  • sewing machine in good working order
  • thread
  • bodkin or safety pin for inserting the drawstrings
