The gift of handmade

a pirate’s life // DIY

I turned 21 last week! Here are some photos of my little pirate themed party (more on my blog)! We had sandwiches and cupcakes and a cake and pirate accessories.


And now I’ll show you how I made the little pirate pouches, which we filled with pieces of eight. Arrrgh! Click on the ‘read more’ tag for the progress shots!

I sewed up some pouches. I can only sew straight seams. I know.

I drew a skull and crossbones on some craft foam:

Cut it out with a craft knife and then stuck it onto more foam:

And then I stamped them on and threaded some rope through the top.  Tip: I used a hairpin to pull the rope through the seam.

Fill with doubloons and enjoy!
