I'm in the process of making a few super-mini goldfish. :)

 

Anyone have any suggestions as to what types I should make next?

How about a Blue Oranda.  (this is my vote:)  ) A lot of us have one/had one.........before our Blue went through a color change on us.

A pearscales would definitely be a technical challenge! It might be more work than fun, though. I think it might be fascinating to try a bubble eye.

Well, I just about finished this big guy! Just need to work on felting the fins a bit tighter, but that won't change the look much. Here is my 16" XL Bubble Eye! I am still deciding on what to price him at. The pictures do not do the color justice. All that pale color is really a beautiful yellow-orange-cream. :heart

So cute! That upside down one got me, I was wondering why you gave it extra fins above its tail. :doh11:

You did a great job. :D

Thanks, guys! 

 

He was so not supposed to be that big! :rofl He's seriously as large as my cat.

 

E2Ask:

 

Would any of you be really interested in buying larger pieces like this? They would range between 6 and 16 inches long and anywhere between $50-$100 USD including shipping?

They all look amazing! If I had the spare money I would definitely be interested in buying large ones like that, unfortunately I don't at the moment :( I'm in love with your keychains too!

The larger ones would be outside my budget if they were pushing $70, but we are also a single income family with lots of expenses. If I was still single I'd say that's fairly priced and probably buy a few :)

Jenna, you Narna! :teehee

Wow, Chelsea, you're developing some serious skills!

We don't have any money either, otherwise I'd love a Googles :heart

Thanks for the input, guys! 

 

:heart There will be smaller ones soon, most definitely, for a smaller price! :teehee

 

I would just really enjoy working in a larger scale every once in awhile. I am having so much fun making the giant ones.

Are they Justine Safe :o

I wish. They really are more display pieces than kid's toys, since you can't wash them. But they would be great decorations for a baby's room!

 

My baby room is a cat room really :lol3

 

Maybe when shes alittle older :)  She has my other felt goldfish :o

My cat LOVES playing with my scrap felt pieces. He knows that if something doesn't work out, he gets it, so he always hangs out around me while I work.

Chelsea, these are fantastic!  You should advertise as we get closer to the holidays when people are looking for secret Santa gifts.  I think small or medium sizes in the $20-40 would sell well :)
