Learn How to make the Fishing Pole Bag

I designed the Fishing Pole Bag to make it easier to carry my husbands fishing pole when he wanted to go fishing.

Being he is disabled and not able to carry his fishing gear himself, I wanted to make it easier for me to carry what he needed in order to enjoy a morning out on the lake.

This is an easy to make sewing pattern that I used fabric quarters to create.

Sewing Fishing Pole Bag

  • Fabric Quarters are 18 inches by 21 inches
  • Sew the short ends together. I used ¼ seam allowance.

  • Fold the material length wise and sew along both the long sides together to make a tube.
  • Cut a piece of fabric from the third fat quarter that is 5 by 5 inches.
  • Still working with the material inside out, pin the 5×5 piece of material to the one end of the tube and then sew it together.
  • This will create the bottom of your bag. At the top end of the bag fold over about an inch to make the sleeve for the draw string, leave a small opening ¼ to ½ long in order to string the draw string through.
  • Turn the bag right side out and string the drawstring through the top. I usually use a safety pin, by pinning the end of the cord and then threading the safety pin through the hemmed area.
  • After you have the drawstring in place thread it through a drawstring toggle to keep it from coming out.
  • Using the rest of the third fabric quarter, cut two strips of fabric 4 inches by 21 inches.
  • Sew the two short ends together.
  • Then fold the material length wise and sew along both long sides together to make a tube.
  • Turn right side out.
  • Fold over the edges on the strap and sew one edge near the bottom of your bag.
  • Then sew the other edge of the strap below the drawstring area.
