Liked this free pattern but would like a fully written tutorial with step by step photos to make a shark? The shark backpack pattern is the big brother to the free shark pencil case and it comes with full step by step colour photos, SVGs for cutting machines, a projector file and of course a video tutorial too!

  1. I love the shark pencil case video and end product! Would love to make some for my grandchildren. When I clicked on the pattern link, it said it was no longer available. Cann I find it somewhere else? TIA!

  2. Hello:
    I can’t get the link to work for the whale shark Pencil pouch pattern. Could you send it to me? I watched your instruction video and would like to make one

  3. Hi Emma, could you confirm seam allowance for the fins and tail on the shark pencil case please. The body states 1cm but that seems too much for the other components.
    Many thanks for your free pattern and great tutorial.

    1. Hi Maggie, apologies for the delay. I did use 1cm seam allowance but you can use whatever you like if you’d prefer a little bigger fins πŸ™‚ Thanks for your comment, Emma

  5. Hi, Emma. I’m sorry to say your shark pencil case link is once again not working. I receive an error code 404, a bad link or invalid URL. I’m looking forward to making this for all the little boys in my family, and maybe the little girls too. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with the rest of us!

    1. Hi there is a letter and a4 version of this so sounds like you have tried to print the letter size with the a4 version?
