Outtakes...& goldfish

Many of you have emailed me asking what on earth I've been going on about fish for....

Well a few months ago when I was finalizing designs for this new children's collection, the idea to make a goldfish came to me. I figured it would be a fun, simple little softie that would accompany the line and the colors perfectly. 

Well, famous last words as they say.

I guess there is a reason there aren't that many fish softies out there... 7 prototypes later, a lot of foul language, many different changes, additions & suggestions and way too much time.... we present Stanley!

Thank you for all the sweet comments & emails about the pattern & mostly about the model! Don't feel like you need to comment on her again... but here are a whole series of out takes from yesterday's photo shoot. 

At this point, I think we are done with kid photo shoots for a while... at least until next week's pattern finishes!

In terms of the fish... well its actually more like Stella when you think about it, but nevertheless Stanley it will be. Ella has already chosen the aqua version. Believe it or not, but the boys as old as they might pretend to be, both also want one!

Can you believe that Stanley has already has his photo taken 223 times? That's one popular fish I tell you. And just fyi, it will be a while before I attempt another animal....







Talk to you soon.


So sweet!
Lovely little girl too.

They are charming! Love those sweet tails!

Obviously quite loveable and squeezeable!

They look adorable, soft and cuddly. The pictures are beautiful.

Oh . . .! All that work was worth it! Stanley is adorable!. . . (& the fabric he's (they're) made out of. . . so pretty!!!) xo, Bren

These. fish. are. so. cute!!!

I love how you're stepping out into these new types of patterns! That little guy is too cute. :)


Those little kid hands kill me.

Oh I love those fish! So cute!!

Is there anything you can't do? Loving Stanley. Is he easy to make?

Those are adorable! My kids want a pet so bad, but our landlord said we couldn't have a pet, not even a goldfish! I wonder if if one of your adorable ones would count (:

Well, maybe they could help make it, pick their own fabrics and then make it
their pet. My daughter has already decided which one is hers and how she
plans on making him a home!
Happy Sewing,


They are just soooo cute. I never thought I'd want to hug a goldfish!
