I had so much fun making this, which is just as well as it took forever!!
It combines lots of different techniques...
The fish and seahorses were made by fusing all kinds of fibres with my embellisher, cutting these to shape,
hand stitching them on to the background and lightly stuffing them.
The jellyfish was made by fusing angelina fibres.
The sea bed is a combination of shibori felting and pebbles made from circles of fabric,
gathered and stuffed into pebbly shapes.
These tubular sea plants are made of small, thin lengths of felt which were rolled
into tiny tubes and wrapped with gold thread.
Finally the shoal of small fish are made from shiny gold fabric, carefully applied with tiny stitches.
The whole piece was finished off with silver bias binding and backed with turquoise felt.
