great for quick little toys or for a hanging mobile.
I saw these once in a mobile, and they looked fairly simple to reverse engineer... and they were :D this example was only a rough idea to show the technique. not made perfectly :D

this is where having felt for the large pattern piece makes a difference in the end result. Sew around the edge of the tail to close it, use a overlocker if you have one, or use a zigzag pattern along the edge. if you used felt, you can just sew a straight edge. which looks much neater than this one.
all done, just use a marker to add some eyes, maybe some fabric (felt is best) ovals for wings/fins (they'll need to be hand sewn on.), whatever you like. easy :D then either add it to the pile of stuffed toys, or make some more and attach them to a hoop or something with long strings to make a mobile :D
