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.
