This fish is about 12cm long and I was trying out a number of new things with it. First of all I used appliqué over which I embroidered the scales of the body. The scales were done using couching, which is also fairly new to me. For the gills I was trying out some needlelace technique and the little bar of stitching behind the mouth is Hungarian Braided Chain stitch. I'm thinking of sewing the whole fish onto a background fabric and maybe adding some waterplants, so I'll update the photo if I do that.
