How to Make

  1. Use a paintbrush to paint a wavy line just under the halfway point of a blue bag.
  2. Fill in the bottom section of the bag in blue fabric paint. Leave to dry.
  3. Use a black fabric pen to write “save our seas” onto the bag above the blue paint.
  4. Cut out two fish shapes from a sheet of self adhesive orange felt.
  5. Peel the backing off of the felt, then stick the fish onto the blue sea that you painted onto the bag.
  6. Stick a wiggle eye onto each of your felt fish.

Top Tip

To prevent paint seeping through to the other side of the bag, place a piece of cardboard inside the bag before painting. Wait until the paint has completely dried before sticking the felt to it.
