Sew…this is the prototype for my new downloadable sewing pattern design (coming VERY SOON to SewThankful.com).
Sew Sharky! is a shark hot pad with a pocket mouth for your hand to wear him like a mitt. He will look awesome sitting on your table, waiting for a hot pot of food to rest upon him…or, hanging on the wall of your kitchen.
Sew Sharky is a Sew TracyLee original design!
I’ve got just a couple minor tweaks to make (mostly in the instruction/editing process), but I like him quite a lot. What do you think?
A dear friend from Jr. High School was my inspiration. She loves sharks. LOL. This one will be a great one for any shark/ocean lover in your life.

Designer, Joan Hawley, introduces a slick, new pocket technique that’s perfect for a tablet or eReader. She has affectionately nick-named the new pocket technique, ‘fat pockets’. Joan describes these fat pockets as dimensional without a gusset, pleat, or complicated construction. She says they are ingeniously easy AND…not only do the fat pockets hold thick things well, they allow the weight of the contents to rest at the bottom of the pocket without dragging the lining down or creating a pucker in the pocket. Best of all, once you have the fat pocket technique in your toolbox, you can use it for pockets on any of the Lazy Girl bags.
Candice features a sweet zip top. Joan used the wildly popular Margo zipper, with a slight twist, to make it even easier.
Candi is a bit taller/deeper/wider/bigger than Margo. She has a fantastic hold-everything front pocket which is as easy to use as the front pocket on a pair of jeans.
Candi (as shown above) uses the size A Bag-E-Bottom and 2 packages (total of 4 rings required) of Clover 1″ wide Rectangular Rings, available in Glossy Nickel and Satin Bronze finish. Joan says Candi’s instructions will include directions to make handles with or without the 1″ sized Rectangular Rings OR ‘D’ rings.
