Here, Fishy Fishy Fishy
Now I have fish on the brain just like the 4 year old I've been babysitting! For this scrapghan block I made a granny square (with ch 2 corners and no chain in between the dc groups) and sewed my fish motif onto it with thread. For the fish I used the pattern Goldfish Motif by Chinama Horiba which can be found here, and if you are on Ravelry the pattern page is here.
(Please excuse the picture, all I had was my phone!!) We've been making paper fish, and yesterday we made an aquarium for them to "swim" in. For the aquarium I used a cardboard box, taped the flaps together, set the box on its side, and cut out a rectangle in the the top. We strung eight fish onto three sticks, and laid them across the top of the box, so that the fish hang down through the cut out rectangle and are free to swim! And of course we decorated the inside of the aquarium with seaweed and sparkly glitter rocks!
