Felt fish

I made these fish to add to Bubble and Squeaks play things last night. We've been using felt and fabrics to create little ponds, lakes and rivers when we do our imaginary play but so far have nothing but wooden ducks to put in the 'water'. They were very simple and quick, I just freehand cut a fish shape, used it to trace and cut a second fish, embroidered the eyes and fins on (very dodgily, dont look too close :-D) and then sewed both sides together. I stuffed them slightly with wadding and added a small metal jewellery ring at the front so we could use them with our magnetic fishing rods. It took about 15 minutes to make all three and the girls love them. I might have to make some more marine life to keep them company now :-)
