Driftwood Sailboat

I am finally getting around to trying  my  hand at making a  driftwood sailboat  . There isn't a whole lot to it.  A couple of pieces of the right driftwood, some wood glue, fabric glue,  some string, a few eye screws and fabric for the mast and that's it. I made this for my  3 year old God Son so I wanted the mast to be colorful. I used a very old Ron Jon tye dye t shirt of mine. I didn't even sew the the shirt,I has some fabric glue and just glued the edges together. I used the eye screws and string to hold the mast in place. I wrapped the top of the mast with some string and topped it off with a yellow flag. That's it pretty darn easy, I just wish I thought of it because they are so cute.
