In Chinese culture, Goldfish is a symbol of wealth and good fortune.
If you present someone with Goldfish (the life one) or any ornament with a motif of Goldfish, it means your are presenting that person with a blessing of good fortune.

I spent one week to complete this. Mainly because I’ve not been consistently working on this. One coaster a day keep me satisfied of my sewing cravings haha! 😉
Anyway, this coasters are made of Batik printed fabric on one side. The other side, is just plain cotton which I stamped with Goldfish. Then because I thought it was too plain, I embroidery one of the Goldfish on each of the coasters. I like the idea! Yay!
The ink will not come off because I use Versacraft fabric ink, and it sticks on ones you have iron over the stamped picture.
I’m thinking to write a Tutorial for this. Well, maybe! Still thinking! 🙂
By the way, it’s a wonderful day here in Malaysia today. Cooling and breezy with just a little sun. I heart this type of day.
