Goldfish bone

I visited my family earlier this year. It has been almost three years since I last saw my sisters and their families. The children have grown so much. Jenny, my sixteen years old niece, is taller than me now. Like all young women, she is very much into her fashion. I noticed she was wearing a silver necklace with a fish bone pendant, very cute.

So when I was paging through books looking for my next project, I came to a stop at the Skelly Fish page in Elisabeth Doherty’s Amigueumi book…it looks just like Jenny’s necklace.

My sister Frances suggested that I should make it a goldfish bone, more fun, she said. Frances picked out all the thread color for me.
Here is the finished goldfish bone.
I am going to post it next month in time for her birthday. I have made the goldfish bone small enough so that she could use it as a book mark. I hope Jenny likes it.
Material: Craft thread 100% Cotton (I actually used some home grown cotton fibre to stuff the fish head)
Crochet hook size: 2mm
Pattern: Skelly Fish page 55 in Amigueumi Super Happy Crochet Cute by Elisabeth A. Doherty
