I just LOVE your little fishy pattern. I couldn't help myself; I made 3! innermostenergon.deviantart.co… It took me a while to submit them but I've been admiring the pattern ever since I found it. It is singularly the easiest, most well built pattern I have found for anything, and while it took me a little while to get the hang of it, these fish are such a total blast to make, and they are just SO pretty.
I have to thank you again for making this pattern available for free - it's such a wonderful, clear pattern and it making those fishies helped me get through a really hard time in my life. <3 I find myself wanting to make more fish every time I find a scale pattern fabric or cow-print patterned fabric.
You know, something I saw as a child was the most beautiful little cloth Koi at an art fair. It was actually a purse as well and I loved it so much, but I was all of 10 and didn't have any money and my parents didn't have a lot at that point either. So my mom couldn't buy it for me, but she bought herself a flower (which was actually half as much as the Koi) and it just broke my heart. This is a wonderful pattern, and I already plan to start looking for material to make that fish that got away. So thanks for posting this, I'm really looking forward to it.
