Hello!

I especially loved making this amigurumi, the fins were real fun!

Meet Fernanda - the adventurous goldfish keychain Smiley





A better view of the tail - I made it double like real goldfish have.


The goldfish isn't big, it's 3 cm tall, 2 cm wide and 5 cm long (with tail 7 cm).

If you want to read more about her - visit my blog.


Thanks for looking Smiley

That is so neat! Amazing details and fins: they must have been fun! Cheesy What size hook did you use? Is that his eyes embroided or crocheted as well?

aliis, EnginerdLisa, fiddlegirl8 - thank you so much Smiley

I'm not sure what size it is because it's older than me Cheesy My mom bought it a looong time ago. I will take a picture of it some time and will post it. All I can say now is that it's small and I use it for almost all amigurumis.
The eyes are crocheted + embroidered reflections on pupils with white yarn.
