*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.

*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.

SPECIAL STITCHES
 Triple Crochet (tr)- Y/O hook twice, insert hook into stitch & pull up a loop (4 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (3 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (2 loops remaining, Y/O hook & pull thru the 2 remaining loops.

  Row 1: ch11, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and across, sl st in same st you attach (10)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.


ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
FISH
     EYE...using black embroidery floss or thread embroider a black dot for the eye.
SAILBOAT
     BIG SAIL...sew it to the 3rd and 9th stitch of the mast on the right-hand side.
     SMALL SAIL...sew it to the 5th and 9th stitch of the mast on the left-hand side.
     FLAG...using red felt, make a flag (small triangle) and glue it on top of the left-hand side of the mast.
