I’m not making a lot of Christmas gifts this year. Two years ago I went a little (temporarily) insane and made ALL of our Christmas gifts, yes, ALL. All I have to say to that is . . . . never again.
This year my handmade list is much more manageable, however I am behind. I’ve been trying to get Connor and Gwyneth’s gifts done before they’re on break because I can easily work on the gifts for their cousins while they’re around. Well, Gwyneth is officially done now. Connor still has two more days of school. I just finished up Connor’s yesterday. Here it is.. . .
a fishing set!
The fishing set is made from felt using the Bugga Bugs pattern found here. I made my fish plain (no eyes or other embellishments, however now that I’m looking a the photos, I’m rethinking it. . . . We’ll see.)
The fishing pole really works and the fish all have NiB magnets in them and the hook too.
I really liked the look of the woven basket.
There was quite a bit of hand sewing and finishing, but I love how it turned out.
Just look at that catch!! Must have been a great day at the fishing hole!
wow! what a lucky boy 🙂
That’s incredible!!! What a neat toy for your little boy! You did sucha great job!
LOVE Bugga Bugs. Such cute patterns!
