I made this heavily beaded and sequinned Seahorse for DearBluebird in the June dotee swap. I wanted it to be a little reminiscent of a leafy sea dragon so I used the organza (?) for fins. I also picked a batik fabric for the body. Then I just went crazy with the beads and sequins. It was actually my second attempt at a seahorse, I had to scrap the first attempt at a fabric mosaic when it started falling apart on me.

Love how you used the organza! Lots of movement and the feeling of swaying in the water, just like seahorses do!

This is really a lovely piece ..and of course, your sequins really do add that special touch!

This is great! I love the organza. It really gives it a feeling of movement underwater.
