This item has a bit of a long history - the goldfish design is my own and was originally made as part of a knitted aquarium for an animated film. I have since made mobiles, keychains and mascots using this pattern. A few months ago I saw a tutorial on how to hollow out old light bulbs and had an epiphany - what if I made a mini aquarium inside a lightbulb?
Making the fish (who has lifelike teddy eyes and mini orange sequins sewn onto his body) was the easy part. Knitting and crocheting the water weed - a breeze. Getting them into an empty lightbulb and finding a way of securing them safely was another matter - it has taken hours of prodding with forceps, wires, knives and wrestling with plugs of air-drying clay to get the arrangement I wanted and for it to stay where I wanted!
However, eventually the job was done and the bulb mounted on a hand crafted wooden base, varnished in dark walnut. So if you fancy your very own goldfish in a lightbulb, here it is.....
The fish and weed have been knitted in varigated crochet cotton on 2mm knitting needles.
