These fish made a splash in our store windows, so we’ve written up a fun little ‘How To’ so you can make your own fishy friends.
Step 1: Cut out the shapes
Step 2: Stitch the two side fins onto the body.
Step 3: Stitch the heads onto each body.
Step 4: Stitch onto the top fin with right sides facing.
Step 5: Stitch lines down the tail (two pieces put together)
Step 6: Lay the top fin onto the body facing in.
Step 7: The tail needs to be rolled and secured with a pin so that it doesn’t get caught when sewing around the body.
Step 8: Lay the body parts on top of each other, right sides facing, and stitch around the sides. Remember to leave a gap so you can turn your fish the right way!
Step 9: Stuff the fish with wadding, hand sew the gap and sew on the eyes.
Ta dah! Your very own fishy friend.
