Off the Wall Friday

Oh, is it Friday again???  So let's see.  I have to show you the fish.

I should have thought take pictures all the way through, but I was too busy concentrating.  The March Challenge theme for my Fiber exploration group is Aquatic.

That is pretty wide open.  I will do the page sized piece later but I wanted to play a bit with the theme.  I had seen a zipper pouch in the shape of a fish, but it was really complicated.  So I went online and did some more research coming up with a different fish.

I changed up her design a bit and then had to change my fabric from the fraying upholstery piece to the black scale-y looking one.  But I ended up liking that better with the metallic gold fins.

He needs some eyes still, but don't you love this?   The next one will be better, his tail needs a design tweak.  From the first one, I have a better understanding of the construction,  I do have a couple of changes that will get me closer to the one I wanted to do.

Don't you love his zippered mouth with that sideways grin???  Tell me what you think of my black fish zipper pouch.

Check out the  others on Nina Marie's Wall!


  1. You need "Jaws" music to play with your fish pic!! He turned out cute! Have you named him?

  2. I thought who did a fish poach??? Well Glen of course!! Very cool!

  3. This is totally fabulous! I can just imagine you pulling it out of a tote and pouring gold from his mouth!!

  4. I can imagine a little boy keeping match-box cars inside that fish ... or a grown woman with a fun attitude using it for a cosmetic bag. It's really cute.

  5. He/she is terrific. Looks like a wide mouth bass, maybe? Great choice of fabric.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
