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.

Kathryn and Tara made the daffs using tiny pompoms of wool,  attached them onto the end of bamboo sticks and then wrapped tissue paper petals around the pom pom.  Each daffodil has its own unique name, which has been stamped onto the luggage tags.

The inspiration for the window came from Ron Scamp, a daffodil breeder in Falmouth. You can read his story here
