School of Goldfish Hand Stitching Felt Kit


Who doesn't want a little school of (rainbow) goldfish in their home? No feeding or flushing ever required! Attach the baby fish as shown or hang them all separately, even suspend in a classic bowl or aquarium.

Each kit envelope contains step-by-step photo illustrated instructions, paper pattern pieces, sheets of wool blend felt, beads, eyes, embroidery floss, needle and pins. I describe it as Confident Beginner, recommended for ages 12 and up. The techniques are simple but a few of the steps involve smaller pieces that require a bit of extra patience to assemble.

Finished Goldfish ornament measure approx. 7" x 10" (18cm x 25cm).

Stuffing is not included as the finished piece is easy to stuff using scraps of felt or fabric cut into small bits, cotton balls as well as traditional stuffing. It also helps keep the shipping cost much lower as it can travel Canada Post letter mail.

These pieces are perfect either as whimsical decorative pieces or to be used in gentle play. They are not recommended for small children.
