Fishsticks Designs offers sewing patterns for unique and modern clothing that is always practical for you and your family. Fishsticks Designs was born from my desire to not only sew clothing for my own children but also to teach other moms (and grandmas, and aunts, and maybe even a few dads) to do the same. Each of my patterns includes step-by-step instructions with words and pictures so that you can read and see what to do next. It's almost like sitting in my sewing room with me. It's at least the closest that I can get without you stopping by for a visit.
I'm blessed to be mom to six children, two girls and four boys. Because my youngest three are boys and they're the ones I sew for the most, I tend to focus my designing on patterns that work great for boys. I also enjoy creating patterns with an incredible amount of versatility so that you can become comfortable with a pattern and go back to it again and again without your end products looking exactly the same. I want you to be able to build a whole wardrobe for your child from just a few patterns.
I begin each pattern with a hand-drawn design and work to get the fit just right for my little ones. Then I transfer my hand-drawn design the computer and create a digital design which is then graded up and down to each of the sizes included with the pattern. Once the pattern is ready, I call on my skilled testers to test out the pattern, instructions and sizing.
My end goal is to give you a great-fitting, easy-to-follow pattern each time!
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:28
THIS IS AN ECO-FRIENDLY, NO-PATTERN-PIECE PATTERN. All pieces are measured and cut according to the included measurements.
Don't head out for the day without your Going to Lunch Bag! This stylish reusable lunch tote provides perfect food storage for a day at school or work. A traditional roll-down top stands open when it's rolled up to make filling the bag quick and easy, while double handles make this lunch bag simple to grab and go. A layer of fusible fleece or insulating fabric in the body gives it structure and helps keep your foods cold longer. Replace the inner cotton layer with rip-stop nylon, and you'll make the inside waterproof while keeping it food safe and washable! The finished size of this bag is 7" wide X 4" deep, and 12" tall open, 10" tall closed.
