After finishing the jungle mat I wrote about yesterday, I decided I better tackle one of the larger pieces and get it off my to do list. The rowboat had multiple pieces and I am not a huge fan of sewing together lots of pieces. In order to avoid frustration, I alternated working on the boat with the thread dress, and some of the animals. You can find the link for the mat and the row boat here.
One change I will make if I make this again is to limit the stuffing. It needs some, but not much. Mine could use a boat reduction program. It made sewing it together a bit more challenging. The pattern does not call for oar locks. I just added chains and sewed them on to help keep the oars from being separated and lost from the boat. The oars can be removed, but with the oar locks are less likely to be misplaced.
I finally finished the hut, but still have trees and more animals to complete. I will add the items I have already finished to the blog, soon.
