Building your page:
Using the tails of each applique, whip-stitch each piece into place!
The Clams:

Whip-stitch the clams 3 in row – use photos as guide

Only the bottom half is sewed on to the page 🙂

 

Optional – Glue/Sew or Embroider on some eyes

Sew the buttons onto the bottom half as shown in the photos.

 

This is a fun and interactive page –
Use to play “Memory Match” or “Hide & Seek”

 

Use the ‘Fishnet’ to store the playing pieces.

My playing pieces are store bought wooden buttons;
but you can use the crochet fishes from Part Two or
crochet little pearl balls for the “Hide & Seek” game 🙂
There are many possibilities!
