Fish Bones and Tentacles

I couldn't resist participating in a pennant trade of Fiber Art Traders. Well, I might have been able to resist, except the theme was "seaside" and well, I couldn't resist. We could make up to two sets of three pennants or "buntings" as they are called by Heather, our Scottish trade hostess. So here are my pieces, and I actually made an extra of each one to keep, so I can add them to the swag once I trade these out. The fish have a glass bead eye and the jellyfish are made from sheers. The "body" is a really cool green sheer with attached crystal-like bits on it. I sewed a circle, gathered up the edges, stuffed it with some blue organza, and stitched the edges together. I was pleased with the results. I think they really look like jellyfish!

I'll be sure to share the finished piece!
