I love your fantasy fish! Actually I love your blog. I want yo make some fish and wondered if you have the pattern for sale? Also, I teach spanish and would live to make the molas with my students but in paper firm any recommendations?

Oh my. I don't think I could audition that many fabrics in that many positions. Good luck on your choice.

Hi Betsy,

I am using a Susan Carlson book. I altered one of her fish patterns and made it my own. You can also purchase just a fish pattern from her for $5:

As far as the Molas, yes they can be created on paper, probably easier than fabric. Start with a back background, then build your design on top. You can do a Google Images search for Molas……hundreds of Molas for inspiration there!

Good Luck,

LuAnn Kessi

What a fun project! Thanks for sharing the extensive background choices. Very enjoyable to see directional changes of fabric, too.
