I made a second fish to go with the first. I started with a form cut from wool felt (above) though you can also shape and needle loose wool. Next, I added padding wool on each side (below).
I left the fin and tail area flatter than the body and separately needle felted some blue fins and tail and needled them onto the fish.
I added a layer of color to the body:
..and a lighter color for the belly (working back and forth from side to side). Time for eyes..
Adding the fishing line...
and voila, a companion to the first fish, complete with eyes, eye spots and gill slits!
Happy Birthday to my friend J!
Till next time, I'll be needlin' around!
