In the super-easy to draft, but 10 hours of sewing category, the fulled sweater flounder:

The only shaping is for his eyes, which have darts to make them protrude. The fin stitching was done on the machine with topstitching thread, everything else (including the dots) was sewn by hand, mostly with blanket stitch.

He is modeled after peacock flounder, albeit in a slightly different color scheme.

It took a while before he found the spot in my apartment where he is properly camouflaged, on top of the giant basket of fulled sweaters.

So creative! I love flounders...they are weird and wonderful Smiley. I really like how you did the polka dots - that must have been quite a chore! Turned out great though.

Thanks for sharing!
