Sailing Away

I'm in a very crafty zone at the moment.  I've got a couple of big projects on the go but I'm also loving taking some time out making some impulsive small projects.  And here's the latest...


A little padded fabric boat.

I don't know why I felt the need to make it but I just went with the flow and this is what came out!

To make it I drew up a template and patchworked some scraps of fabric together.




I had fun choosing some embellishments.







I added an old curtain ring so that it could be hung up.



When it was all sewn up and turned the right side out, I added some buttons and stuffed it lightly with some toy filling and that was it.



At first I wasn't sure whether the project had been a success but I'm liking it now and it makes a cute summer decoration.


It's good to give the creative feelings full rein.
