Well Mr T, I took you at your word! One pillow, although a small one. I wanted to pratice my freehand sewing machine work with some dyeing and painting of fabric, as well as trying to keep my whimsical style. Three days ago this was a plain piece of white cotton fabric. The fish has been painted in pearlescent paint, so sewing all the details was a bit heavy going at times. All the stitching was done freehand on my sewing machine. But, although it took me awhile to complete, I must admit I am a bit chuffed with it. It also has quite a tactile feel to it.
This is the fish on the flat before it was turned into a pillow.
