Sew: Felt Fish

These felt fish were inspired by a wall-hanging I bought in China. An auspicious symbol, they’re a great craft idea for the upcoming Chinese New Year. I hand drew my pattern and have yet to digitize it (coming soon!) so I don’t have anything available for download. You can always enlarge the photo above and trace the fish to make your own pattern.

For each fish, you’ll need:

2 plastic eyes, available at most craft stores
4 pieces of felt – I used different colors for the front, back, scales and band (area above scales)
Thread

Once you get all the pieces cut to the right size, the sewing goes pretty quickly. I recommend sewing all the pieces onto one side first and then sewing the two sides together. Done!
