This project was both inspired by the Japanese homonym where 'koi' means both 'carp' and 'love' and the beautiful yin-yang moon spirit carp from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Together the carp nestle into a yin-yang pattern, and their matching markings form a heart shape. A wonderful gift for someone you love. Minky is used in the sample plush photo, and I suggest using a similar stretchy plush fabric like fleece for this pattern.

Sew Desu Ne?
Hello! My name is Choly Knight and I'm a seamstress of over 15 years from Orlando, Florida. I've been sewing since middle school and have yet to put my machine away. I'm the author of several craft books from Fox Chapel Publishing, including Sew Kawaii!, the Sew Me! series, Craft Projects for Minecraft, and more to come! I studied Art and English in college, so it's been a dream come true getting to work in a field that lets me combine my passions for writing, fine art, and craft art. I'm deeply inspired by Asian and Japanese art and craft as well as anime and kawaii style. The anime community has been more supportive than anyone as I ventured to learn to sew, so you'll find my designs are heavily influenced by that style.
