Your fishie is cute, and I like the idea about putting it in the bathroom windown.

adorable!  I have a friend who would love your fishie.  Too bad I suck at amigurumi, LOL!

There are two sides to a trumpeter's personality.  There is the one that lives only to lay waste to the woodwinds and strings, leaving them lying blue and lifeless along the swath of destruction that is the trumpeter's fury.  And then there's the dark side.

I would do that, but the only window I have in my bathroom is beside the shower. If I were to hang them there, they might get wet.

Thanks for the comments Cheesy

If you were to make them for sale (they're awfully cute!) , I think you would market them better if they were striped.....just my 2 cents.....

Those are so incredibly adorable! I would use them to make a sort of mobile-type thing, but not necessarily for babies. Does that make sense?
The sequins idea would be really cool. Especially for the mobile thing I have in mind. It could hang near a window and when the sun catches it the fishies would go all sparkly. Or you could even use those big sequins, paillots or whatever they're called.
As for price, it depends on how long it takes to make them. If you can whip out like 3 in an hour, I'd say $3-$7. Depending on how detailed they get. Sparkly fishies are more expensive. If it takes longer to make them, maybe the low two-digits. Say $10-$15.

They are adorable!  I love the green one.   Cheesy

If they're easy to make, I'd add catnip to the stuffing and see if your local specialty pet store or vet's office will keep a basket of them on the counter and sell them for you.  Cat lovers would gobble these up!

If they take a while to make, I second the mobile idea.  I can picture these brightly colored fishies hanging over a baby's crib.  I wouldn't use beads or sparkly things in either case, but I don't think they need it.  They're perfect just the way they are!

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*
