I'm a Catch! 2013 Valentine's Shirt

I'm a catch!
I've had this idea to make this shirt for Valentine's Day since last year.

I followed the Freezer Paper Stencil Tutorial from Dana's Made Blog - there area ton of tutorials in blog land, this was my first attempt & they are all right... it is addicting! 
I can't wait to make some more fun graphics for summer.
 I just had one little spot that had "seepage" under the freezer paper.
 I then used left over "scaly" looking fabric from my Mermaid Halloween costume  circa 1998 for the body & tail of the fish.

(yes, that's right 1998!)
I actually stitched a few rows of scales in a contrasting color...
 Added felt fishing pole, eyes & heart shaped lips...

 Done - watch out girls... He really is a catch!

Thanks, Karla
