Cutest DIY Fabric Sailboat Toy

Are you feeling nostalgic about the summer? Me too! That's why I tried to make the summer last longer by sewing a few adorable fabric sailboat toys. A wonderfully soft baby toy and a soothing farewell to an awesome summer. These homemade sailboat softies are a great (and quick) beginner sewing project and so much fun to sew! 


And UPDATE: there's a free printable PDF template for you to download and sew tons of these adorable softies! Totally free!

This easy sewing DIY might keep your summer memories alive a tad longer. And it makes a perfect homemade gift for a baby.

Are you ready to make one too? Head over to Irina's tutorial at Sew in The City. She's made a step-by-step tutorial with lots of photos, perfect for those who'd like to make a quick baby welcoming gift. I'm sure you'll love it, these fabric boats are an adorable beginner sewing project.


To those of you who are no beginners at all - and I'm sure you won't need to follow a tutorial to figure out how to make this ship - have a look around. You might find a lot of other great sewing stuff on Irina's site, too!

Now, think: how many kids are there in your life? It's that many fabric soft boats to sew! They are quick and easy to make, and I hope you'll have lots of fun sewing them! You can make them in any size, too. I think I could make an awesome fabric boat pillow next time.


A hint to make it faster: when cutting pieces for your DIY fabric boat, cut several additional sets, set them aside and store somewhere safe (away from scraps so you don't accidentally throw them away!). Next time when you need a great last-minute gift for a toddler or a baby, it will only take you several minutes to sew an additional sailboat soft toy and make a certain kid totally happy. A win-win!
