Rainbow Fish

I’m actually very proud of my first big project with freehand machine embroidery – a fish on a bag that I painted myself.  I did the painting after taking a Craftsy class.  Then I asked my daughter what I should put on the bag.  She replied that it looked like the ocean and therefore a fish was required.  Well, this is what popped into my head and here are the results!  What do you think?

About halfway through I realized I probably should have either used some stabilizer or hooped the project or both.  But live and learn (or in this case sew and learn).  Then I was watching another Craftsy class on machine embroidery and was inspired to try free-hand satin stitch for the eye.  That was new, too.
