Make a Splash with this NEW Swim Bag project!

Whether you’re heading back to the pool this summer for lessons or going to the hotel pool on a getaway this year, you will LOVE to sew this new Swim Bag project.

This new sewing pattern is a kid’s sized waterproof drawstring swim bag, so it’s easy for little hands to access!

It has a waterproof lining for soggy swimming costumes with a ‘dry pocket’ for any valuables. We have used the Rockpool fabrics from Dashwood Studio which we think the kids will love. 

Grab this pattern for FREE when you spend £25 in our online Sewing Superstore (excluding postage)

Project features:

  • This swim bag is fully lined with a waterproof lining so you can keep wet swimming togs away from anything else you wish to keep dry!
  • It features a waterproof front zipper pocket to keep your undies dry or store electronics away from the water
  • Drawstring closure – easy for little hands to open & close
  • If you feel the zipper is pushing your sewing skills, there are also cutting instructions for a bag without the zipped pocket
