I have several friends with baby boys who are celebrating or about to celebrate their first birthday. We can’t be there for them but I thought I will make a little something for the boys to enjoy. Selecting boy-ish fabric isn’t too easy in my girly-girl fabric stash. However, I really wanted to use what I had so, I pulled out four different fabric and I think it works. The only thing I bought this time was 1m of ric-rac. I simply traced a simple boat on a piece of paper and used it as a template. Nothing difficult here. I thought those tiny boats were too cute and could be used for a quilt block. I need to do a quilt boat now. Joinining them together, adding some polyester fiberfill and voila: I added an embroidery for my little cousin. His name is “Tom” so it was nice to add a life ring for the “O”. I loved how they turned out and I hope the three little boys will like them too.
