1; first drill a hole on the one end of the dowel rod, use a 9/16" drill bit.
hen tie one end of the leather string through the hole of the dowel rod.
At the other end hot glue the magnet to the end of the string.
2: print out the pattern for the fish here, for every fish you make you will need two cut out, a front and a back. I made 6 of each color so I cut out 12 of each color of fleece.
3: Pin two cut out fish together. Sew around useing a zig zag stitch. Leave a 1/2" open at the mouth to insert the paper clip.
4: insert paper clip. (I place a paper clip on top to show what it looks like on the inside) Hand stitch the mouth closed, stitch around the middle of the paper clip to hold the paper clip in place.
Now let the kids enjoy!
