20 in 20 giveaway (April- day 13)...

20 handmade projects in 20 days...day 13. Gone fishing! EZ E and Kicky have a vintage version of this fishing toy that they play with all of the time. Each felt fish has a magnet sewn into it and the fishing pole has a piece of metal to "catch" the fish. The photos show a paper clip, but I replaced that with a washer to make the toy work better (I lost the light before I could take new photos). Think of this giveaway as four minutes of happily occupied silence. Don't those fish look awfully happy to be caught? Thanks to Paper Pastries for sponsoring today's project. Happy 20 in 20!
