This post is totally inspired by a post from Dana. She did this with her kids and as I was looking through her blog, my girls saw it totally wanted to make a pirate ship for them.
I did a few things differently. The hats and patch were from this book.
The only downside is that all the patterns in the back say to enlarge x2. I hate when books have that. They may as well just not put the templates back there. So I just free-handed the pattern.
Also, I didn't have any black elastic, so I colored it with a sharpie. Made it look more rustic right?
I had the girls help with the stitching along the hat. Even my 3 year old got in on the action and did pretty good.
this tutorial, I added a pirate ship flag to our wall so we were legit. 2 legit to quit!
And speaking of that tutorial: So far the fabric has left no color stains on the walls. Its been a month of black fabric on white walls. And the flag below is fabric starched to fabric starched to a wall. And it is sticking. No sew!
