Ahoy there, me hearties!


Ahoy there, me hearties!, originally uploaded by soja.

And some pirates too! I couldn't get to sleep until I'd got these made, funny. The eyes are felt and embroidery, I covered and stuffed some buttons for the noses. I like the way the head gear had turned out. I cut up a bandana (1/8 of a bandana per pirate) for the headscarfs, and worked out a little paper pirate hat first, before cutting it in the felt.

I like the bare-chested pirates too - I'm still debating whether to add some chest hair to these. :-)
