I made this for my partner in the One Tiny Embroidered Thing swap. I used about 4 or 5 different shades of orange and yellow and the white is metallic floss, so he glistens, just a tad.

My partner wanted a pouch to carry coupons in so he's been sewn into a little zippered bag to keep everything neat and tidy.



Thanks for looking.

oooh!  I really like that!  It's a good idea to put in on a pouch too.  I always need another pouch.  Cheesy
I'll bet your swap partner was very pleased!

Yay! I love goldfish.
Beautiful color work! Did you draw the pattern yourself?

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

I didn't do the drawing myself, I actually used a google image of a goldfish and traced the outline, the fill in work was all improvised though. (I don't think I could free hand draw a goldfish and do it justice. I just adore them.

What a cute little guy! I like how you stitched it up, and it looks great with the fabrics you chose.

I love google for exactly this purpose!

I keep coming back to look at this pouch! I love everything about it- I just noticed that the lining fabric has jellies and seahorses.
