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! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The body of this fish is about 5 inches long, not including the flowing tail!

Supplies Needed

  • Wool-blend felt scraps in orange, yellow, and white.
  • Seed beads in orange.
  • Sheer fabric for the tail (scraps are fine!)

I am a plush pattern designer, craft book author, and sewing teacher. I design patterns for stuffed animals from my home studio in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Sewing dolls and toys is my passion! I strive to make my patterns easy to follow by including step-by-step photos all along the way and writing clearly. My toys are clever and fun to sew. I think you're going to love making them! You are welcome to sell the toys made from my patterns! Since 2005 I've been sharing my ideas on design, technique and the culture of craft through my blog ( I have a master's degree in education from Harvard and taught middle school social studies in Mississippi and Massachusetts before becoming a textile artist and the mother of three girls. My daughters, now age 8, 6, and 18 months, are the happy recipients of all of her prototypes! <br> My first book, <i>The Artful Bird: Feathered Friends To Make and Sew,</i> was an ALA Booklist top ten craft book of 2011 and I have a new book coming out about soft toy design! It will be published by Lark in May of 2013.
