This is fantastic. I'm envious of people who can look at a stitch like this and create something around it, you're all amazing!

I initially made every row shell stitch, but it didn't look as nice, so I ripped it all out and started over.  It is really tricky to get the tension right when making shell stitches on a round doll!

I'm glad you mentioned that . . . I was thinking of a project where I'd make shell stitches in the round but I wasn't sure it would work.  I guess it doesn't!

Your fish is so cute!  I love the lips.  Cheesy
