I made these fun felt Mayflower boats that I copied from the Pottery Barn Magazine a few years ago. Back then, I only had 2 kids. Well, little Scarlet has been around for 3 Thanksgiving seasons now, and still is shipless! Poor little thing. So, this weekend, I busted out the good ole pattern and my box of felt to bust out the 3rd boat.
I thought I’d rekindle this old, quick tutorial just in case you missed it!
Here’s the inspiration (bottom right):
I’m pretty sure the PBK version is made with some sort of cardstock…but I wanted mine to be able to stand the test of a roughneck tub in the garage year after year. So, that’s why I went the fabric route.
I cut it into a 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch rectangle. I stamped my kids names on the center with Stayz-On Ink and snipped the tiniest holes in the top section and bottom section and then yanked my dowel through.
