Note: Read all the instructions before starting the project. Requirements are based on fabric 107cm (42in) wide. Lisa’s outer fabric is a directional print, which she fussy cut to highlight the fish – more fabric may be required to do this depending on the print you choose. Lisa used teal solid fabric for her handles, handle connectors and inside lid zipper pocket, and navy solid fabric for the trim and piping. Seam allowances of 1/2in are used throughout unless otherwise stated. You can make a double-pull zipper using two long-pull zippers of the same brand, one the stated length and a shorter one,
