To make these fish pot holders, you will need 2 pieces of felt or denim (jeans) 8" x 5 1/2"; matching and contrasting embroidery thread; 1 curtain ring; 2 blue or green buttons; 1 piece of flannel 8" x 5 1/2"; sewing materials; cardboard; pencil; scissors; and pins. Follow the illustrated (sketch a) above and make a cardboard pattern. Trace onto felt and cut out 2 felt fishies. Cut a third fish from flannel and place between felt fish. Pin together. Use matching embroidery thread to make a blanket stitch around fish through all 3 thicknesses of material (sketch b). (To make a blanket stitch, put your needle in 1/4 inch from the edge of the fabric, put the thread under the point of the needle and then pull the needle with the rest of the thread through. Repeat until finished.)
With a contrasting color of embroidery thread make a backstitch design on fish (sketch c). (a backstitch is made by first bringing the stitch up from the underside of the fabric and then going a quarter inch behind the thread and then going under the fabric and come up about a quarter inch in front of thread. Keep doing this.)Sew a button on each side of holder for eyes. Sew curtain ring at top so pot holder can be hung up (sketch c).
