To our publishers and customers

[June 16, 2019] The site has now stopped selling patterns.

[April 30, 2019] After almost 11 successful years in business, Patternfish will cease selling patterns on 16 June, 2019.

We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Rainbow Stripe Felt Market Bag

This big bright market bag has rainbow stripes covering it's base and running all the way to its curvy frilled edge.

The stripes vary in width to give a great random effect, finishing in a spectacular violet edged ruffle.

This fun bag is knitted and then felted by washing in a normal clothes washing machine.

My 4 page pattern gives full and clear instructions covering knitting, making up and the all important felting method.
