My kids are forever collecting things (hence the Little Collector’s Backpack!) and we wanted something small to hold their treasures. I’m showing you how to make a seashell collecting bag – and this one stays open so little hands can slide in and out easily! Mesh is a little slippery to work with but a plain old gluestick helps hold things together while you sew. All the bias and twill tape means very little measuring or tube turning, so this is a quick sew if you have a family reunion or beach birthday party favors to make! Please make sure to be mindful of the rules taking seashells from anywhere you’re visiting, and that some shells may be reused by smaller critters, so throw them back in if they look seaworthy. I’m sharing the tutorial as a part of the Summer Fun series hosted by Life Sew Savory, so be sure to read to the end and see the other projects being shared!
