Fish Play-mat by FelineMyth Fish Play-mat by FelineMyth
finally uploaded it! :aww:

this was my year 11 (last year) textiles project, we had to make an educational toy and overall I got an A (the matt itself got an A* but the rushed/can't-be-arsed-to-do-this-anymore paperwork (B) brought it down)

mine was based on numbers, with child having to match the appropriate fish (number on belly, orange = odd, grey = even) to the correct lily pad (number on underside, number of bug buttons), at its widest point its about 1.5 metres

why didn't I upload it sooner? well, even though I was proud of it, it was so much work that every time I looked at it I felt ill :/
not only was the matt huge, the fabric difficult to sew and the fish really detailed (although adorable xD) I also had tons of paperwork to do... and all in a really short space of time
I literally worked to my breaking point... I even cried over the thing!

but i'm okay now and can finally show it off... so enjoy!!!
comments are always welcome :D

EDIT I forgot to mention but after I completed this my old textiles teacher (who went on maternity leave at the beginning of my course -_-) bought this mat :D so I'm afraid its not for sale ^^; /EDIT

Oh, I absolutely love this! I wish I had a game like this when I was little! Brilliant work. I don't suppose you'd be willing to sell this? I would totally buy it!
