I accidentally killed the fish

I bought this fabulous Brandon Mabley fish fabric and coordinating Kaffe Fassett polka dot print to make a reversible tote bag. I was so eager to get started today that I forgot about the fish being a directional print.

After I cut it out, I realized that the fish were upside down! Nothing to do but sew on and have a sense of humor about it. Maybe it'll drape enough when I wear it that no one will notice. Lesson learned.

Have a colorful day

They are only upside down for folks looking g at it head on! They are right side up if you look down at your tote!!! Looks great. Love the colors

Love that, Robbie. You're right!

Made me smile! But they won't be upside down for you when you look down on them!!!

Darling! Maybe the fish are "down under"? The pattern and colors are so great, no one will care that the fish are doing the back stroke! ;-)
