The first cut is the deepest

Well I did it! Yes I did it. I finally made the cut. Not the final cut mind you.

It wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it might be.

Once I had committed, there was no going back and then it all flowed quite nicely.

The reason I hacked into this fresh and untainted piece of fabric was to produce a drawstring bag.

A bag that was to contain 5 little fishes.

5 little fishes made of felt. Felt finger puppets to be exact.

A gift to celeberate the occasion of a very dear friends little person turning 1!

Happy first birthday!! I hope she liked it.
