Inspiration: I wanted to make something else in felt and I wanted it to be colorful. After some image surfing on the internet, I settled into making some clown fish.
How I Made Them: I found an image of a clown fish I liked online. I printed out 2 copies. I cut them out and created templates as I cut - one of the main body, then cut out the white stripes for more. Then used the 2nd copy to cut out the 4 fins.
I used the cardstock templates I made to cut my pieces out in felt. I applique stitched the white stripes onto the fish body using white DMC floss. I placed together my front and back and between them placed the fins and the charm hangers. Starting at the front bottom fin, I blanket stitched around the fish using a DMC floss as close to the main color of felt as I could find. After passing the last fin on my way around, I paused and stuffed the fish with some polyfil and then finished it. I glued on a google eye to finish the fish.
