AARRRGGHHH You Ready for Talk Like a Pirate Day??

Did you know that tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate day?

In celebration of this, one of my favorite annual holidays, I thought I'd share a pirate craft!

I made this for a recent craft swap. My partner told me that she liked pirates and giant squid and since I couldn't pick one or the other to work with as theme, I incorporated both!

I used this skull and cross bones x-stitch pattern and then surrounded it with giant squid that I cut from felt and embroidered on. 

I used this great tutorial for adding a nice back to the hoop so that my messy stitches didn't show.

Avast mateys, enjoy the holiday!
