    Fish Fishy with photo

    I had fun making this. I am not sure what I will do with it though.

    Really different - unique! I can see that hung in a masculine room, i.e., den, man cave, bedroom.

    That is a lovely piece of work. I like the 3D image given by the border and the corner triangles which look like they are all curved slightly like as if it was formed off the bias? In fact there are quite a few places where you have used the bias to form the curved edges. Very original and creative. I absolutely like it. If you decide that you want to re-home it, I am very willing to oblige! LOL. Thank you for sharing.

    The border is simply small pleats that are ironed one way and then sew down the middle in the opposite direction. Start with a strip of any width. Mark each side at one inch intervals or whatever size you want. Then sew across each pleats to make it permanent, first in one direction and then in the other until all of the marks have been pleated. Press all the pleat in one direction and edge stitch them down. Then turn the strip around and sew down the middle to make the pleats twist. You can also sew one edge one direction and the other edge the opposite for an interesting look.
    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
