The Fish Shirt

Joshua has this cute summer button down with fish all over it. Well, actually, it has fish bones all over it. So, really, Joshua has a shirt covered in the remains of dead fish! For some reason this bugged me a little and I decided to add an accent to, literally, bring more life into the design.

I cut a simple fish shape out of scraps of t-shirt fabric.

I played around with a few ideas for the layout. The first two are more of a striped pattern and the last one is more random.

In the end I went with the random layout. I sewed the fish in place and then added a little fishy face. Now their are a few happy fishes in that fish graveyard! Survival of the fittest, I suppose!
