Let's go fishing

I have had the idea to make this in my head for ages and kept putting it off thinking that it would take ages to make.
However once I started it was quite easy and didn't really take that long.
To make the fishing rods I used a short length of garden cane and covered it twice in quilting fleece. I then covered this with bright material, sewed a length of thick ribbon to the end and added a piece of velcro to the other end of that.
The fish have the other piece of velcro on them. I thought for an 18 month old it would be better to use velcro rather than small magnets which could come loose or could be swung around!
I made a little fishy themed bag to store all the pieces in.
The complete set:

Packed and ready to go fishing!:
