DIY Cardboard Ship Pattern

I am humbled by the reaction to last weekend’s ship building.

There have been requests from a good few mums for the pattern, (plans are being hatched to build ships for their very important little-uns), so I went back to the drawing board and made a ‘proper’ pattern to share.

All I ask of anyone using the pattern is that you come back and share a photo of your little ships so we can share in the joy – the MollyMoo fleet :)

The pattern is for personal use only

Sincere thanks to awesome blogs Small To Big, Molto Piccolo, and Colour Me There (formerly Li’l Magoolie) and CraftGossip for featuring our craft :)
