Our love for strange creatures here at House of Whimsy is not a secret, and the anglerfish is definitely on the weird list. In this pattern, our rather intimidating anglerfish is luring a tiny snack of a fish in with her glow-in-the-dark lure, surely ready to snap it up at any moment. This embroidery pattern is not just an excuse to stitch a fun and fearsome anglerfish onto something you love, but also an excuse to use glow-in-the-dark embroidery floss if you wish.
This anglerfish hand embroidery pattern is 11 pages long and includes details on colors and stitches used in the example embroidery. It also has two views of the pattern itself: the original direction and a reversed direction, making it easy to choose which way you want the fish to be oriented no matter which transfer method you prefer. Also included are instructions on all of the stitches used in the sample, which makes it a great pattern for beginning embroiderers.
I make clothes for imaginary people during the day (in a professional theatrical costume shop), and make fairy doors, hellpuppy toys, and embroidery patterns by night.
