I'm feeling needy and unfulfilled, so I'm designing something for myself. I want it to be germane to me and my valid feelings, so I'm calling it the Half Bass Bag. Once it's drafted and tested I'll put up the pattern as a "free but please make a charitable donation" item on my website because, y'know, this is how most people with advanced degrees from ivy league institutions Make The World A Better Place.
If it's going to be a Half Bass Bag, it behooves me to make sure the "half bass" part is accurate. (For the record, I was bummed that I could not find any donkey fabric.) I have Robert Kaufman's fish fabric from the "Sports Club" line, but not being a fisherwoman myself, I am not certain which of the fish are bass species. I know there are a large variety of bass and many aren't even closely related to each other. My closest experience with bass involves them being already gutted, scaled and usually pre-filleted. I wouldn't know a live one if it bit me in the... bass.
Here's a photo of the fabric. I've put a pin through what I think are the most likely suspects based on a Google Image search. If there are any fishing folks out there who can confirm my picks or direct me to a correct fish on the fabric, I would be ever so grateful. Here's what I'm working with, and thanks in advance:
