I cant tell you how relieved I am to have completed this project!!! I was so excited to give these "fishing game" gifts. Yes, I am lame and could not think of a better name for them. I have been calling them "fishing thingys" for weeks so?? Fishing Games is the official name I suppose. You may remember when I first posted about them here.
As I mentioned in my previous post regarding these toys MUCH of my inspiration came from this post at Create Studio. Please check out her blog and leave some love! I have referred to this link DOZENS of times!! Thanks SARAH!
So, without further ado...What do you think??
I took some shots along the way so you can sort of see the progress!
The longest process was cutting and pinning them all. 48 fish take some time.
Somehow I do not own a pin cushion??? Hubby helped by stabbing pins into the cardboard template I made. Thanks hubby!
It was a huge relief to have them all stuffed!
Here is one of the girl sets
I used faux leather to make the worms. Honestly, I am NOT thrilled with the way they turned out AT ALL but they were the last step and the kids all liked them. Since I used the faux leather I had to use 2 magnets in each worm to make it strong enough to hold the fish up.
I used PVC pipe to make the rods. They seemed less likely to break

I would LOVE to know your thoughts! Please let me know what you think :)
