Swimming in the Ocean Blue

Oh, I love it when I'm asked to crochet something special for someone! When they find something I have in my shop, or that I've done before, and tweek it a bit for their own needs. When they want something but in a different color or size, or paired with something else. You know, something special just for them.

Well, that happened with some fish.... I had made a play set that had several sea creatures in it, including said fish, and I was contacted about making those fish for a crib mobile that the customer was making for her nursery. She sent me pictures of her nursery colors -- a wonderful ocean blue, a lighter blue, grey, and navy for good measure!



These are her fish, swimming in the ocean blue 



A school of fish, looking at you!


 Oh, fish poetry!!


After they were done, I asked if she would send me a photo so I could see how her mobile turned out... and she did and gave me permission to use them here.



Didn't it turn out cute?



I love the way she painted the bobbers to match!



and the midnight blue for the wall is perfect for a fish theme!

What a lucky baby to have such a talented mom!

Oh, I LOVE them! Her mobile is a really cute idea. Are those floaty things really called bobbers? (I've never been fishing so I'm not really up on my lingo, haha.)
