SockFish



SockFish
Pattern: The Giving Flower

This was my first fish. The pattern was very clear and had nice illustrations. I sewed the eyeballs on wrong the first time giving him a very mixed up look. Luckily the stitch witchery came off and I applied stuffed felt eyes with buttons. I haven't decided on the strap yet. I used some black brush denim from my stash. Under the fins are pockets. How very clever:)

In order to get these buttons, I was forced to stop at Ben Franklin, where of course I found the last pair of dp needles in any size, which just happened to be size 10.5, the size I needed. I also purchased Pursenalities and 2 skeins of Cascade 220, all in under 15 minutes. Is that not impulse spending or what?

I came across a Destash. Shteeni is selling her stash so she can take up spinning and walk in the The Avon 2 Day Breast Cancer Walk.

Sock Fish looks great! I almost bought the pattern, but then I'd have to dig out my sewing machine from under the boxes and bags of clothes it's buried under first. Thanks for the destasher link. My husband "thanks" you too. ;)
