Finished just in time! I spent most of the month making these little guys, and most of the day today making them into a mobile! I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I've been wanting to make this mobile for a while now, and this challenge not only inspired me to make it but got me to go from a lurker to member & poster!
There are 3 fish, a starfish, octopus, jellyfish, and seaweed. I didn't follow a pattern for any of them, and may actually sell a few of the patterns on etsy in the future. The eyes on the fish are child safety eyes that I hand-painted myself. The mobile is made using a repurposed wire hanger. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I covered up the strings hanging the smaller wires with more seaweed.
Sorry about the picture quality, I was in a hurry to get them posted.

The whole shebang
Jellyfish - dark blue cap with white tentacles
Medium blue fish
Octopus - purple with light green eyes
Starfish - dark red (bonus: the arms are somewhat pose-able!)
Here are some better pics I just took:https://picasaweb.google.com/112304027966600506930/CraftserSeaCreatureMobile?authuser=0&authkey=Gv1sRgCLC7mIOOjO6okwE&feat=directlink
