A while ago, this cute sailboat pillow was featured on Sew, Mama, Sew!, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make one for my little boy. His nursery is going to have a bit of a nautical theme, so it’s perfect! This project was SUPER easy! I skimmed the tutorial, made my own pattern, and had the entire thing sewn in less than an hour. And it was entirely free! I used some scraps from the crib skirt, boppy cover, and a couple others form my scrap bin.
I added more ribbon taggies (scraps from my ribbon bin) than originally shown, because I liked the idea of the boat having lots of cheery, celebratory signal flags!
In the tutorial, the author gave an idea to insert a little bell, so my daughter helped me poke one into the stuffing 🙂
I hope my little boy has lots of fun with this little taggie pillow!
