This weekend I was in Boston and saw the cutest change purse. I looked it over and said, “I can make this!” I’m going to have a school of fish soon here on my table because they are so cute and easy to make! So here it is my example with directions, patterns, etc. Enjoy!
Time Frame: 1 period
- Review basic sewing skills such as pivoting, clipping, zippers, buttons, turning things right side out with corners, etc.
- Scrap Fabric (thicker works the best)
- 1 Zipper
- 1 Button
- 2” Piece of Ribbon folded & pressed in half
- 1 Keyring
- If you have students that will finish this project too quickly suggest that they embroider the front of the fish before sewing it together. The fish could have stripes, polka dots, eye lashes or brows, a monogram, etc.
