Button fishes are simple to make and it is possible to make little fishes and grass no sew.  But you will have to sew buttons and if yo need help with that just google. It is easy and quick project.

You will need:
5 buttons
felt ( four different colours of your choice) and one green for sea grass
glue or thread (optional)

Print out Button Fishes Quiet Book Page Template and cut 8 fishes in total, be sure to make two pieces of the same colour. Glue or sew two fishes of same colour and cut button-hole in the middle, depending of your button size. You can also make fishes in one layer but I would not recommend that if you work with standard 3 mm thick felt sheets. Under constant pressure and button off it may tear very quickly. That is why two layers make sense.
