I made this hoop for the One Tiny Unloved Creature Swap. My partner roler loves moray eels, and even has a cute photo blog
of stuffie eels on adventures! So I knew I wanted to create something with that.
I used this photo by Fred Bavendam
for reference, and somehow wound up shortening the snout... so I don't know if it looks weird now? But I still like it!
I made tiny french knots for the mottling on the back.
And tiny teeth!
I'm happy I got to stitch this lovely critter for the swap, because I'm sure I would never have thought to do it otherwise.
