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.
