Fishy fun!

One of the ladies I work with celebrated her birthday this week and as she’s a world-class angler, something fun and fishy was entirely appropriate! I created this very simple, primitive fabric keyfob for her and it’s my entry for this week’s Mixed Media Monday – “Child’s Play“!

Best fishes...!!

I drew the fish shape very simply on what remains of my patched paper/fabric quilt, cut it out, stitched round the edges, attaching the green netting as I went. I added the eyelet and the keychain, et voila! She was really pleased with it  – result!

My favourite book when I was small was by Dr. Seuss – One fish, two fish… and remember songs like “When the Boat Comes in”? Fun to remember all those fishy, childhood things that I experienced when I was small and when I had my little girl… now a teenager! 😉

  11. Rosie, I gather you are not to be trusted with a pair of scissors if you go around your house chopping bits out of quilts etc!! Your fish is wonderful. He is so unique and, yes, handsome in his own way. Great work.

    I love your fish. It has wonderful energy. I loved Dr. Seuss, too, and your fish has his whimsy.
