Well, Vlad and I are getting ready for a week at summer camp with the BoyScouts. The theme this year is Pirates. The scouts want to make the entrance gateway to look like a pirate ship. My son mentioned he wanted a Jolly Roger to go along with the theme. I asked my daughter to draw a skull and crossbones on white fabric while I scrounged up a 3X5 piece of scrap material.
I'm thinking all along this will be a quicky project, when after much discussion with my daughter (DeathintheReaper) that it should be made well so it holds up for summer camp as well as be used later on for a pirate themed Halloween.

Anyway the only piece of material I could find for the flag base was a deep burgandy which didn't make my daughter happy. Before I knew what I got myself into we where trying to darken the background and age the fabric both for the flag and skull and crossbones.
I spent about 8 hours hand stitching all the seams, appliqueing on the skull and crossbones. Next was to find grommets so we can run it up the mast of the ship once we build it at summer camp.
I'm hoping to bring it home in tack for use later on for Halloween if we ever do a Pirate theme.

Good stuff!
We're headed off to Cub Camp the first week of August with the same Theme! We have a few of the parents making props. I have the ships wheel with skeleton pirate at the helm. I'll post up some pics as it progresses. Have to get busy on it as we leave in less than 3 weeks.
Gotta love Scout camp!
