This fish is a bit different from my own. I modified my first pattern because it didn't close over the camera properly, therefore, the closed lips weren't so closed afterall. Anyways, I had initially made this one for someone who was buying it from me, but the colours weren't what she wanted. Non the less, this is what it should look like with the lips drawn closed.

It's so pretty.  I love the decorative stitching around the eye, and how the fins are hearts. Is it made out of pink corduroy?

It's actually some thin pinstripe pink cotton I bought in the cheap fabrics at walmart.

that's really pretty...but is it padded inside or anything? If so, with what? I hate my ugly, conspicuous camera case but I'd be way too afraid to just let my camera bang around in my purse without a solid padded case... (hmm...maybe I could make a slipcover for my camera case...getting ideas...) well, thanks for the inspiration. That's a lovely, unique little piece.

It is padded actually. I just measured how big my camera was on the side with the screen and the lens & then cut out 4 pieces of quilting batting & sewed them together. 1 for both sides.

So I got a new camera for christmas and needed a case. I thought it would be cute to make it like a fish. I didn't get a shot of it, but the drawstring closes and makes the fish's kissy lips. It's wonderful Smiley

this was a great tut, i didn't have any iron on transfer or ribbon so i did my graphics, cut a piece of med-heavy iron on interfacing to 8x10 ( the size of a sheet of computer paper), ran it through my ink jet printer and wooo-hooo a sheet of iron-on labels. Thanks fpr the great idea.


That's great! I never thought of that. Personally I still prefer ribbon though, just cause it gives the whole label a bit of sheen.

As far as fraying goes... What I do is I cut the tag and leave just a tiny edge and then I spray the whole back of the tag with spray adhesive. Then I stick it to whatever I'm creating. Best part is you don't have to pin it while you sew the edges down. & the glue eventually dries and prevents fraying along with the zigzag stitch along the sides. There are many methods but I've found this one to be the easiest for me.

PS. Thanks for all the comments! I'm glad that everyone has enjoyed the tut so much!

Very cool! Your bf is totally lucky to have a crafty chic. Just outta curiousity, where did you get the pattern for the drum kit embroidery??

I did it free hand. I just looked off a picture of a 4 piece drum kit.

That's really, really great!  I love the embroidery.  Are the white sections felt?  You even matched up the stripes on the inside.  What a great, personalized gift!

they are felt. and thanks!
