Now you have achieved fish you can decorate him in many different ways. You will need to give him an eye (one on each side) and perhaps a smiley mouth. I did a chain stitch in red across both sides to define the head section.

To create a fin effect - with a darning needle , stitch straight across the top and bottom of your fish very neatly and there your are - instant fins! Stitch through both sides.

If he is a plain little guy, it would be fun to embroider some little flowers on his sides to make him (or her) a bit more cheerful and friendly. If you choose to make him stripey, he may be cheerful enough already. in either case, he/she is all ready to pop into your pocket and your friends' pockets! If you have a cat, I am sure he or she would love a little fish like this to play with!
