More Slap Dash Sewing stuff...Introducing the Slap Dash Fishing Game.
The Low down:
Fabric: odds and end of stuff I'm not crazy about
Other Materials: Poly-fil, weak magnets in the fish, high power magnets in the hooks, sticks from the yard, cotton string.
|A game of patience.|
I did the fish freehand because my goal was to get it done as soon as possible. They about 6 inches long with a magnet in the mouth area and stuffed with poly-fil. I fashioned some "hooks"with scraps leftover from the fish and high powered magnets. I sewed this to a cotton string then tied it to a stick I had the boys pick out.
If I were to make this again I think I'd put the high powered magnet in the fish and the weak one in the hook. I think I'd also use a bit less stuffing so the fish were lighter.
|Can you tell which are fish and which are leaves?|
For now it's fun enjoying an Indian summer fishing in our yard.
