Step 1 of 4
Transfer the template to kraft paper, then trace it onto a double layer of fabric. Cut out the sides and bottom of fish shapes with scalloped shears; for the mouth, leave a 1/2-inch seam allowance and cut with regular scissors.
Step 2 of 4
Sew pieces together at the mouth, and turn right-side out.
Step 3 of 4
Iron the mouth flat. Sew or glue an eye onto the side that will face out. Pin the fish onto the center of the towel.
Step 4 of 4
Sew the fish to the towel using a zigzag stitch, leaving the mouth open. Tuck favors inside.
