Fishbowl Ornament

 It's that time of year again. Where we are all looking for the perfect gift item. How about something handmade? Here is a mix medium ornament for you.

Rubber stamps used:

Additional items needed:
A pair of good scissors
Shirk Film
Ink - StazOn
Color pencils- Faber-Castell
Hot glue gun and sticks
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
Blue yarn - 4 medium, Worsted weight
White yarn - 4 medium, Worsted weight
Crochet hook size I 

Finished size 4" L x 3 1/2" w If your ornament is bigger then mine your tension is looser then mine just go down a hook size.

Step 1: Start by stamping your stamps on the shirk film the ink will need time to dry before coloring.
Step 2: Once the ink is dry color in the stamps with color pencils. Then cut them out carefully.
Step 3: Follow the instructions on your Shirk film to shirk them. Once cooled you will want to use your Mod Podge to seal in the color pencils.

Step 4: Crochet the fishbowl while you wait for the Mod Podge to dry. Fishbowl pattern below is provided by LaSheet. Follow her on Instagram for more crochet and stamp ideals. 
Step 5: Assembling it all together! Once you've crochet your fishbowl and the Mod Podge is dry. It's time to heat up the hot glue gun and glue down all your pretty pieces. Take a piece of yarn about 8" long to make a a big loop to hang on your tree. I used the lark's head knot in the top middle part of the fishbowl, then tied a basic knot on the top making the loop. 

Skill level beginner friendly. You will need to know how to work in rounds and how to work a chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, and half double crochet. 

  • ch - chain stitch
  • ss - slip stitch
  • sc - single crochet
  • hdc - half double crochet
  • * - work everything in the stars into the next stitch.

Note: This pattern made in round. Do not join rounds unless told to. Use a stitch marker to mark the start of the round. A small piece of yarn in a different color works great. If you don't have a stitch marker. I personally like to start my round with a magic ring method, but you can also use other trusted methods like: ch 2, work 6 sc into the first ch. whichever you use make sure you have 6 sc in a circle, with no holes in the first row.

Row 1:  magic ring. (6) or ch 2, work 6 sc into first ch, to form the ring.(6)
Row 2: 2 sc in each stitch around. (12)
Row 3:  *2 sc in next stitch, sc in next stitch* repeat 6 times. (18)
Row 4: *2 sc in next stitch, sc in  the next 2 stitches* repeat 6 times. (24)
Row 5: *2 sc in next stitch, sc in  the next 3 stitches* repeat 6 times. (30)
Row 6: *2 sc in next stitch, sc in  the next 4 stitches* repeat 6 times. (36)
Row 7: *2 sc in next stitch, sc in  the next 5 stitches* repeat 6 times. (42)
Row 8: Change to white. Sc in each stitch around. (42)
Row 9: ch 2, hdc om the 2nd loop from the hook, 7 hdc across, ch 2 hdc in the 2nd loop from the hook working backwards then ss into the crochet making it look like the other side. This is the "lip" part of the fishbowl. tie off and weave in the ends.
