Tuesday with JessicaSews' Fish

I can reveal 2 of the 8 Angelfish that were ordered.   Each of these are made according to the favorite colors of the recipient.  Without knowing too much information about the person that is getting the fish, I work with whimsy & joy!
Some fish had only a few choice colors, while others had as much as 5....that made it fun for me!
I'll include a card with each fish that will include a little color-meaning information, as well as gift-giving traditions, I'm sure that the information will be enjoyed.

The order came in with some fish being similar, the fun part is, they won't be have fun viewing the differences!  These are ready to be stuffed and finished by adding the "fishing line".   When all of the fish are ready for mailing, I will share a "group" photo.  

The first one is #6  Colors requested: Purple, Blue, Pink

* Dragonfly - hand-dyed lace by 
Nicki Lee's RavioLee Dreams
Includes: Amethyst Glass beads, Variety of Beads, Ribbons and Charms

The second is #7  Colors requested: Ivory, Rose, Green, Purple and Blue

Includes: Amethyst Glass, Variety of Beads and Charms

These fish were sketched and patterned by me.
I'm going through phases of  "fin looks" and all but one fin design is original work.  After learning how to make a flower from Tom Russell, it didn't take long for me to try them out on the fish.

It's a perfect fit.

Yes!  These fish are 2-sided!

  3. Yes, the Fish Charms are 2-sided, but not exactly identical...that makes it more interesting!

  5. Love your beautiful work! The flower is so cute.
