Enter……Sammy the Starfish!

Here is my first attempt at hand stitched applique. It is incredibly time consuming. Looks like my “Under The Sea” project will be a long term one!

 

Have fun! Avis x

    • Yes, I can’t believe how well it worked out. Some of the fishes are in the same fabric but a lilac shade. Couldn’t resist the smile πŸ˜€

    • No I haven’t seen it. I just tried to make him a little irregular which was difficult for me as I really wanted to make him from a perfect pentangle. The fabric was spotted in my stash by my OH. I was about to use my beloved solids πŸ˜‰ I’m off to Google Nemo and friends πŸ™‚
