Here is the pattern...or patterns for the angler fishy...

Profile of body and tail...


Chin and belly...


Fins...


Forehead...where the eyes would go....and upper lip/mouth....


And for the light stem I used a sock scrap...I guess you could come up with your own idea on how this part would look and pop it in at the top of his head...and as for the bumps on his head I had to put those on to cover up the light switch access area....with the teeth didn't use a pattern at all...just folded a white eco felt sheet in half and free formed the front teeth a lil' more fun that way...also the single side teeth where just cut out and hot glued on...and his lip was just sewn in after I assenbled him...at the base I used a draw string concept to gather and tie off the base...even if you don't want to make a lamp you could prolly tweek or taper the belly pattern at the square part to be sewn up and made like a regular plushie...and one last bit the side fins were labled wrong my bad(they look like a fan)...I used a basic cut and pinch seam to insert and sew the fins on his sides......hope you ENJOY!

And Thank You for your votes!!! Shocked Grin
