Today I spent some time working on another felt barrette. This time I’m making a goldfish that’s stuffed with fiberfill and complete with googly eyes.
I still have some work to do. While I finished the goldfish, I still need to sew some felt around the barrette and attach it to the little fishy.
Once again, I’m throwing a question out to you guys…any ideas on what color I should go with for the barrette base? So far I’ve gotten two great suggestions: (1) green like seaweed and (2) blue like water. Both ideas are great, but I think I’m gravitating toward blue because I think it will look nice with the orange and I can add some of my white iridescent bugle beads to the base for a little sparkle (a la bubbles).
What do you think? Is blue the way to go? What do you think about adding a little bling with bugle beads on the base? Is it going too far? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
