Sweater Fish Plush

Here is the last of the Sealife Swap crafts! I made this little fish plush out of a sweater. I can probably never hope to be able to knit any sort of rad patterns like this, so I'm grateful for recycling.
All of the fins are made from felt with machine stitched details in rainbow thread.
Sewing thick and stretchy material like sweater is kind of a pain in the butt, and if there's a secret to it, I sure haven't figured it out.

He turned out wonderfully- whatever you did to sew the sweater material worked great! The rainbow thread is a nice touch =)

I love the little embroidery details you make on your items. Show us your tools! Sewing machine, embroidery machine, thread, software...what do you use? Such cute things. I thought they were all hand stitched when I first seen them. Oh, you are so good at what you do!
