Seashell Collecting Bag

13 Apr

From Come Together Kids : My kids love collecting seashells, but I never liked how gross their shells got by the end of the vacation. Take some wet, sandy shells, leave them in plastic buckets in the hot summer sun for a few days and you’ll end up with a stinky mess that you don’t want to transport home.   I decided I’d try my hand at making my own mesh seashell bags.  I was really pleased with the way they turned out and they worked just as I’d hoped ~ the perfect bag for collecting and no stinky, sandy buckets of wet shells to lug back home.


  • mesh fabric ( I found a utility mesh at JoAnn’s that worked perfectly)
  • cotton fabric (1/2 yard is plenty)
  • sew on velcro
  • about 20″ of 1/4″ ribbon
