   The hubbs loves keeping a fishtank. I told him I don't care, so long as I don't have to take care of it. And my daughter loves to watch the fish, because the tank is just about her eye level. And he has a couple of clownfish in there, which of course, I named Nemo and Marlin.  Smiley
  So when I saw Simplicity pattern #3955, which includes a clownfish fleece blanket, naturally, I had to make it. I just didn't realize until I got ready to buy fabric how big it is. (Just about six feet. It literally takes up my entire couch, as evidenced in the following pictures...)

Sorry for the crappy shot. I wanted to upload these pictures, but there was no one to hold the blankie for me. So my couch is serving as stand-in model.

And a close up of the face, which shows the color better:


She loves it. But she's only two, so next to her, this blanket is HUGE. Oh well. She'll grow into it. Smiley
Comments and criticism always appreciated!
