What you need to know

Flounder & Scuttle are sure to be a hit with little swimmers

This matching beach bag and mat are a must-have this summer, and guaranteed to be the envy of lookers-on at the beach or pool. Val Pierce's striped fish-shaped bag is made to fit the mat, with some extra room for a swimsuit and a pair of goggles. The mat's motifs are sewn on afterwards, avoiding any tricky colourwork, and the chunky cotton yarn used for the majority of the bag and matt provides a sturdy material that's resilient and easy to clean.
