Hello! I'm excited to be blog swapping with Tricia today. I found her blog just a few weeks ago and I love what I see so far and can't wait to see what she comes up with next. I am so intimidated at making sleeves and she makes it looks so easy that I just *might* want to try it again.
I'm showing off a super fun wire wrapped vintage button ring tutorial at her blog The Leafy Tree Top Spot
Hello, I'm so excited to be visiting you here at Holy Craft. I'm Tricia from Leafy Treetop Spot. It is just a little blog about sewing and crafts, created by little old me. I'm a stay at home mom of one. I love to create and craft because I feel such satisfaction creating things from raw materials, and on top of that it keeps me sane.
At my blog you can find a collection of my creations. You'll find things ranging from t-shirts to teaching toys and sewing techniques. I do hope that you'll stop by and visit me.
Today I'm going to introduce you to my newest creation. I call it the "Go Fish: Fishing Hole". I was inspired to make this project after seeing this post by Richelle. I decided to add a few of my own personal touches to it. I made a storage caddy for the fishing poles that has a pocket for the fish, and a pond for fishing in. It is a great toy to keep your children busy while introducing them to colors.
Want to make one for yourself? I'll give you a talk through tutorial. Here we go.
To make four fishing poles and a fishing mat the size of mine you will need the following:
2-36" dowels (1/2" in diameter)
1 yard craft felt
1 piece of blue felt large enough for the fishing pond
8 9x12 sheets of craft felt in assorted colors
1 9x12" sheet of tan craft felt (for worms)
4-1" candle base's (found in wood section of Joann's near the dowels).
4 lanyard hooks (found in jewelry department of craft store)
4 eyelets (with tool for attachment)
acrylic paint in assorted colors, and paint brush
4-24" pieces of cotton string (for fishing line)
12 small neodymium magnets
Thin batting for added thickness of fish (enough for all 8 fish).
4 screw in eyes (found in hardware department of Wal-Mart)
1- 24" piece of grosgrain ribbon to tie up roll (fray check the ends)
Black Embroidery thread for stitching faces
2 pieces of 1 inch elastic
Happy fishing, and crafting.
Thanks so much Rachel for having me here today. It's been fun.
See??? Didn't I tell you she is amazing?! Thanks so much Tricia!
