Crochet Pattern: Sailboat Appliqué

By Amy Lynn Yarbrough – 4 Comments
Unlike most girls, I have always loved a nautical theme. I decided early on in my life that I would learn as much about the world of water and man’s history on it as I could. And though some children may grow out of this interest, almost all love the adventure the sea promises. Whether you are designing a nursery or a simple blanket or piece of clothing, choose between this and some of Crochet Spot’s other nautical and marine inspired appliqués as well: the Anchor Appliqué, the Fish Appliqué. and the Something’s Fishy Appliqué!

    I love the appliance! However, I’m not so sure that “unlike most girls” is correct as lots of girls and women I’ve known have like the nautical theme. Maybe it’s where you grow up? I grew up on the coast so it was a given…my G-ma even had the ubiquitous fishing net decor in her bathroom and utility room.

    • Hi KatyM,

      I’m pleased you like my pattern!

      What I really meant was contrary to what the general public might think, where every little boy outfit has a nautical-themed and every little girl outfit has a princess-themed. I didn’t mean any discrimination. Sorry if I offended.

      Amy

        You in no way offended!
        I was forced to wear pastel pink as a child and it’s scarred me for life! :) I have red hair and a peachy complexion and pink makes me look like I just recovered from a long illness.
        Everyone is entitled to their opinion and that’s yours. Thanks for the clarification.
        Happy day!

    BTW, auto correct somehow changed applique pattern to appliance. Go figure!
