I've tryed some more SRE, and actually dyed some 7mm ribbon to use for making this goldfish. The scales are done in very short ribbon stitches (no longer than the ribbon is wide). The tail and fins are just straight stitches, but I did tack them down in spots with some invisible thread. The eye is a black iridescent bead, the bubbles are clear beads, and the beads on the bottom are from a bead soup that Connie K. sent me. The water plants are 4mm in a twisted straight stitch.
