I had so much fun making PE bags for the Podlings last year that when I found out Tom would be continuing with his school swimming lessons this term I wanted to make a bag for him to take his swimming kit in. I normally cobble things like this together from things I have in my stash, but I was extravagant on this bag and actually bought the fabric. I really wanted something with fish on it since it was going to be a swimming bag. I am completely in love with this nautical sea creatures cotton fabric I found in Hobbycraft. It was exactly what I had in mind. The bag went together really quickly and I love how it turned out. I really could have done with buying more cord as the drawstring is a little short, but I can always replace that later and it is certainly serviceable for now. Hopefully Tom will like it as much as I do!
The fabric is a 100% cotton quilting fabric called Nautical Sea Creatures by The Henley Studio, Makower UK
