This is quite possibly not the right place for this - but close enough I think!  Smiley
I've been playing around with the idea of making a stringer of fish- in fabric - ever since I saw some carved out of wood on Etsy.  I loved the idea of having them hang on the wall somewhere, so I devised my own plan.  These are made of canvas - gessoed and then painted with acrylics and textile medium.  The paint is kind of shimmery and I intentionally frayed the edges on the tails and fins - just cause it kinda gave them a look I was going for.
  All done - I gave them hooks and strung them up - ready to hang.  Smiley

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.

what a fantasic idea! I think I will have to make some of these to hang in my craft space too - or even better, in my mum's beach themed craft studio/hut Smiley

Well done   Grin
