These cute little fishies can be whipped up in a flash. Put them in a glass bowl with gravel and a little crocheted pond weed for an everlasting pet. No tears and toilet burials with these little cuties!
Or you can stuff with cat nip and give to your kitties as a toy. Attached to a piece of elastic and a stick they will have hours of fun.
Just don’t leave the bag of cat nip lying around as it really is kitty crack! My female cat Queenie quickly tore open the bag and was found writhing in ecstasy on top covered in her own slobber!
They also make fun charms and can be added to a bag or keychain.
So here is the quick and easy pattern. You can find it below or download free for later here
