I love watching fish. There is something so peaceful about their movements. Even the little brown ones that nibbled my feet were fascinating.
I thought I'd try to make a fish cushion I chose a koi because they are so beautiful and according to Chinese tradition they attract wealth and stability. Hopefully this applies to homemade ones too.
This is the result, a rather fat koi type fish about 30 inches(76cm) long. I think I'll have another try to create something a bit more elegant (less like a cuddly whale?) and then I'll put a pattern up.
EDIT: Finished the pattern - about three weeks later. You'll find it in this post for 19th September 2011.
