School of Crocheted Fish

Love these little fish! Inspired by on line photos that you can see here. Easy to make too. I simply began with a crocheted round which I folded in half and slip stitched together. Remember to stuff before you completely close them up :-)
The fins and tail are made from lightweight clear plastic bags cut into strips. They are threaded through the crochet stitches and stuck together with double sided tape. I tried glue but that just made a mess because it took too long to set.
I plan to mount these using Shish-kabob skewers stuck into styrofoam. I'll post a pic when it's done.

Until then.......
