Fish Bowl

I have made a couple of other embroidery hoop art pieces in the past.  You might remember my turtle and lady bug puffy pictures or my button heart valentine.  I decided to try out a new design a couple of months ago.  

I started early in February but this is as far as I got.  I was really busy making things for March markets and my Etsy opening.

Since the market I had scheduled this weekend was cancelled I decided to take this opportunity to finish up my little experiment.

This is what I made!

I knew I was going to make a fish bowl embroidery hoop but I really had no idea what I was going to do until I started working on it.  I knew the fish would be felt but then I had to get creative and think of what could look like rocks and a little plant.  I raided my craft supplies and tried to get creative.

I used a little bit of everything in this project.  There's an embroidery hoop, some fabric, ribbon, felt, buttons and embroidery thread!!

I originally planned on having more details on the fish but as I was stitching them I thought it was a little too much.  Simple is usually better in my opinion.

This embroidery hoop is now available at Dreaming in Craft!  :-)
