I have just spent the morning and a little after lunch putting together this little softie fish to include in my Cousin's baby basket.
I found a tutorial here.
I did not use a button for the eye as it would have been a safety risk for a baby, so I found a piece of soft, velvet like fabric for some texture and used that instead. (photo taken of fish sitting on an orange dishcloth so he would stand out on a bright surface).
I think I will buy some other bits and pieces to fill the rest of the basket up. I sure enjoyed making these two items though, I am definately stepping out of my normal comfort zone and trying all these new sewing things. I can spend hours looking through tutorials and seeing if they seem easy enough for me to try. Such a rewarding experience to see these items come together.
Hope all my dear friends and followers enjoy the lovely Easter break Stay safe and enjoy the time with your loved ones. Happy Easter.
Until next time, happy stitching/quilting
