This patch I made by sewing 5 layers of sheer white fabric on brightly colored felt. Then I sewed in the pattern of the koi and it's scales. And cut out the layers in between the sewinglines. In some places I cut out all the layers and in some places between 2 and 4 layers for the gradation of colors. I want to use it on something, but I haven't have any ideas yet.

This looks great! I was really unsure about it when I read it on your list of 50 projects because I hate koi, and i think they're scary! lol  But it looks great!

That's one hell of a compliment then. Getting the okay of someone who hates Koi Tongue

But to be honest it took me only like one evening of work. And a blister for trying to cut out all those scalythings Smiley
