A felt fish; complete with gusset no less!

I've just finished my second item! I can't believe how quickly I am creating these lovely beasts. My beloved daughter has been asking me for a felt fish for several weeks after seeing one in an old book of mine.

I was given a bag of my old childhood books from my Mother, and in there was the "Ladybird book of sewing", still inscribed with an old school friend's name from way back when! Darling daughter set eyes on the fish and has been desperate for one ever since.

Well, since she made me a certificate last night for sewing the valentine hearts, I decided my cheering committee deserved a reward of her own, and here he is! He even has a gusset, which I'm really proud of LOL!

Like the hearts, he took me 1 hour 20 minutes to make and the cost of materials (felt, embroidery thread, tracing paper and carded sheeps wool) was probably about 50p

I can't wait to see little one's face tomorrow when she gets to meet her fishy friend! He's already had a repair job done to his bottom because he kinda burst open when I put the stuffing in, but I think he has recovered already ;)
