I had been approached by a regular customer of mine, a mother of two small children, to create some treat/gift bags for the upcoming birthday of her little girl. With the Bubble Guppies (kids tv show) as the theme, our first thought was to create character bags for each child. However, instead we agreed on mermaid tail or fish tail bags, keeping in theme of the tv show, but making the bags similar to one another. (and avoiding any child conflict on wanting another child’s bag instead:) ) I am quite pleased with the result, and have decided to share this free pattern with you today!

Starting from the bottom up, you will work the tail fin back and forth in short rows, where the first and last row are joined, and continue to work up in rounds. The top decorative edge is made by using the crocodile stitch, and finally finished off with the simple drawstring.
