Fishy Business

My son's best friend has a goldfish, Goldie.  He is very fond of this fish, and to honor the beloved pet his mom asked me to make a goldfish stuffie for her son for Christmas. 

I couldn't find a pattern out there for a goldfish so I had to improvise.  I had so much fun putting together this little guy - from the fishy shaped body, to the ribbed tail and multiple fins,  to the bulging fishy eyes! 

I'm really happy with how he turned out! and the addition of the smooching fish lips as suggested by the client really pulled it all together.  I'm sure this will be a much better playmate than the real thing :)


  1. O M G!!! That is just ADORABLE!!! I hope you plan to do a quick pattern for it - I'd love it!!

  2. I love Goldie! So cute! I bet the little guy will love it!

  3. He absolutely LOVES his Goldie fish! Thank you!! =)
