~ A Little Fishy ~

Yesterday I made this:

I've toyed with the idea for a while...
~ well, for a year almost to be precise.

For a long time I've worn my favorite hook around my neck,
as Peter drilled a hole in it for me to slide a length of hemp or ribbon through the wooden handle....

I wanted to make a wearable pocket to hold my hook instead ~
and then got to thinkin'...
how about a fish to hold my hook?
{ terribly corny pun intended of course }

and this is what came from that ~
a Big Mouth Fish!

and I enjoyed using a plethora of different textiles to hook him with
like heavy weight wool yarn, light weight yarn, beautiful Fair Trade silk sari ribbon, 
~ shiny, crinkly rayon ribbon and of course, some wool strips.
{{ in a rainbow of colors I might add }}

I chose an equally fun cotton fabric from my stash for the backing...
one I've used before as a lining for another hooked purse.
~ just plain fun!

it's comfy to wear too ~ 
and can hold a couple of my hooks in that big mouth of his!

I just listed the pattern for my fishy little friend in our Etsy shop ~

and of course I would LOVE to see your version of this!!

Have a creative Sunday my sweet friends ~
