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.


  1. Your craftiness really knows no bounds! There is no way I'd be able to whip something up like that, especially out of the blue. Thats why I love following your blog. Craft on Sweetie, let your talent shine!!!!

    PS - Absolutely love your boat and what a perfect place to hang it! =D
