a tribute to Sushi the betta fish, my pet betta fish that passed away.
i used those thin translucent plastic bags from the produce section in the grocery store, partly because we don't get free plastic bags here in Toronto and the only plastic bags i have on hand are those produce ones. but also because i think the translucent and delicate quality of the produce bags would make a nice fish.
for this project you'll need:
plarn (aka plastic bag yarn. if you need instruction on how to make plastic bag yarn see http://hellejorgensen.typepad.com/gooseflesh/2007/02/plastic_bag_yar.html)
3-4 of those produce bags would suffice.
3.5mm crochet hook
another plastic bag to stuff fish
shiny silver material (i.e. the inside of a candy wrapper)
a black Sharpie
Step 1: Crochet the body
You’ll get a shallow cup shape.
