"Kiss Kiss Fish" Tat-A-Long



This is the little fish pattern is called "Kiss Kiss Fish".
Let's begin!
2 shuttles to make.  Then 12 seed beads and a larger bead for an eye. One fish is
2 and 1/2 centimeters long in size 40 and little larger for larger size thread.
Above picture is made in size 40 thread, can be made in any size thread, will be fine.  You need 12 seed beads that seem to fit the size thread, size 14 for a size 40 thread If your close with the bead size you should be fine.
Or size 11 seed bead for size 20,  this goes on shuttle one, with at least 1 and 1/2 yards of thread or 140 cm of thread to make one fish.

I think the hardest part is threading the beads on. Shuttle 2 gets one larger bead about double size of the seed bead you are using. (this dark blue bead is 3 millimeters long). 
the thread length is less than half of shuttle 1

Once you have beads threaded on separate shuttles, tie them together using square knot or whatever you like.
It is very important to leave long tails of 22 cm long or 8 to 9 inches long. This will be cut off when fish when completely done because will be used to strengthens the main fish shape.
Day 2 is tomorrow not sure if I want to make a day three or just finish the little one tomorrow :)
