We are in the process of designing a brand new bedroom for Anna’s boys. We were offered the opportunity to re-style a children’s bedroom with products from online home decor store, Hayneedle, and have had a blast designing a camping-themed room for Anna’s little adventurers. The big reveal will come later this month but we couldn’t keep this felt fishing game to ourselves any longer and just had to share it with you. What better pastime to indulge in, when you are on a camping trip, than a little fishing? For our kids’ version we used a wicker basket to act as our mini fishing hole and made a selection of fish from gorgeous wool felt, ready to be caught by our mini fishermen. In beautiful tones of gray, aquamarine, rust and coral, these felt fish are not only fun to look at but also soft to the touch.
- Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 (recommended)
- Craft Scissors
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Embroidery Needles
- Assortment of Lia Griffith’s Wool Blend Felt
- Embroidery Floss to match
- Craft Eyes – 6mm
- Stuffie Puff (Poly-Fil)
Once you have cut out the templates, the fish are easily constructed using a hand sewn blanket stitch around the edges and hot glue to attach the fins. You can find our full tutorial below. Don’t forget to insert a magnet in the fish prior to stuffing it. Download and print our fish patterns using the button at the end of the post. Our next post will include our tutorial for the detailed fishing rods that will not only be part of the game but are added into the decor of the new room. Enjoy! ~ Lia
