My sweet sister-in-law asked me to make a little fishing game for her boys. I started by cutting out all the felt fish using my Cricut Maker. Then, I added a little heat transfer vinyl eye to each side. A quick outline stitch on my sewing machine and they were ready for magnets.
Using a good old fashioned needle and thread, I stitched in some paperclip mouths.
|I’m not sure how I took this picture but the bottom of my pajama pants can be spotted in the corner… I’m guessing some crazy cirque du soleil stuff was happening….|
My original plan was to use a dowel as the fishing rod. I mentioned this to my husband and he had a different idea.
|I didn’t take any pictures of him making the actual rod but here is a picture of the magnet going into the lure.|
I went back to the sewing machine and made a little bag to store everything. I powered the Cricut back on and cut out a name in htv.
|That fishing rod actually works!|
|I wish I had taken a few more pictures of the pole. I actually made two of these projects (the other one has a gray pole) but I didn’t even take one picture of the second one!
So, what do you think?
