Thar be Pirates!

 Last week I went "thrifting" with my friend Amy. I was showing her around my favorite Thrift store and there were a bunch of pirate telescopes, new in the packages for .45 cents each. So naturally I had to grab 4 of them for my boys :) And how can you really have a good time with pirate telescopes without pirate hats? I bought a yard of black fleece for $4.98 and got busy making them. I used interfacing to give them some stiffness and cut the scull and crossbones out of felt and then stitched then on. I wanted to have them finished by last night because my daughter and I had an outing planned for today to take my Mom and all the boys
 to Crystal Cove in Laguna Beach.

It's awesome there and the boys had so much fun exploring the tide pools. So for about 7 bucks we had ourselves 4 little pirates! It was a wonderful day! 


  1. Looks like a good time was how by all!!!
