so i really wanted to make an embroidered pillow using the sublime stitching sushi patterns.  but I needed a picture of a fish.  so I found a nice koi design on this site:
http://www.tattooagogo.com/
and printed it out, blew it up, and simplified it a bit into a nice embroidery pattern.
here it is embroidered:

with maneki neko and "i love sushi" around it.  but I made the "I love sushi" kinda subtle so as not to scare the fishie.  and he could so take out those little cats!  Cheesy
Here's a close up of a maneki neko:

anyway, after I embroidered the yellow fabric, I sewed it in a border of red fish-scale pattern fabric (the lady at Joanne Fabrics said it was really a floral pattern fabric, but I knew better)
the back is more of the red fabric with an envelope-style opening, and a tassle for decoration:


I am SOOOOO proud of it!  it turned out exactly like i visualized it!!!!  I hope you like it too!
