This was my first planned out, semi-major project. It took me about 30 hours over two weeks.

My designs were more than a little inspired by this stamp set by My Cute Stamps:


The Close-Ups







If I were to do it again, I'd have made the fish all a bit larger.
There is a lot of negative space going on.
Any C&C greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much for inspiring me with all of the awesome posts on here!
I've been lurking for weeks!

That is soooo cute.  Cheesy What a great idea. I don't agree about the negative space - that makes it look like an aquarium.

I love it! When I saw the first pic I thought it was machine embroidery, so your stitching is great! I love the negative space it really does give it the fish bowl feel!

This is just wonderful, and I love that it's a pillowcase.  That cute little crab is gonna stick with me for ages!

Remember the time he ate my goldfish and you lied to me and said I never had a goldfish? Then why'd I have the bowl Bart?

Why.

Did I Have.

The Bowl??
