Pattern Description:

Goldfish are gorgeous! This goldfish is made from scraps of wool-blend felt, seed beads, and flowing sheer fabric for the tail. Hang him as an ornament or play with him as a toy. For a different look make some vibrant fish combining different colors of felt and sparkly seed beads!

If you are pleased with this free pattern, I hope you'll consider purchasing one of my patterns! The nice thing about the patterns you pay for is that you can sell what you make whereas the free patterns are for personal use only.

Thank you!
