I cut two waves. One is a background wave that is completely sewn on, and the other is a pocket to keep the fish and rod in. The rod is made from half a cooking skewer. I have seen them made from unsharpened pencils as well. Currently each of the fish has a paperclip sewn into it that peeks out of it’s mouth. Now that I have thesesuper strong magnets from Amazon, I will be putting a magnet inside each fish and using a paperclip or lanyard hook for the end of the pole. That is, if the magnets aren’t so strong that the fish start to stick together.

The templates are for 9×9 inch pages. Make sure to leave at least a quarter inch border when you sew your pieces onto the page, otherwise when you sew other pages to the backs of these, the stitching will go through them. Leave at least a half inch on the side that is going to have the holes for binding the pages together.
