Another UFO Finished

I love to take fabric motifs such as butterflies and bead them. Sometimes I use already printed fabric and sometimes I draw my own motifs. A few years ago I started beading this fish. For some reason, I fused it to felt - I usually use stabelizer used for machine embroidery - so I know why I didn't finish it! But I love the fish so while cleaning off my work space I found it burried and decided to finish it. Here are pics of the fish where I left off and one of it completed. It's about 4" long so it is a little large for a pin. I may use it on a purse.

A good feeling of accomplishment when you come across a forgotten half started piece of art and then finish it so beautifully .

Hello Stephanie,

I just come over to your blog to read more about you... You are a dollmaker !!

I also made a few dolls but with selfhardening clay.
Your dolls look really good : you can see you are someone with real sewing skills !

I like the fish, especially the colors you used; Personally I wouldn't have covered all the fabric, cause I really like the colors on the fabric of the fish too.:) But that's my humble opinion...
