Summer Sailing

★★★★★ ★★★★★

Create this cool sailboat with a 3D hull and dream of racing in the next regatta! Change the colors in the sails and make a fleet of boats for interactive imagination play.

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed:

  • Blush - 53
  • Light Green - 115
  • Turquoise - 60
  • Pastel Lavender - 30
  • Purple - 44
  • Grey - 78
  • White - 813

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here. You will also need:

  • Quick-drying clear adhesive
Step: 2

Download the PDF for the Summer Sailing Project Pattern. You will use 2 large square pegboards to create your project. If you are using a clear pegboard, slide the actual-size pattern underneath it. Place your beads following the pattern.

Step: 3

Ask an adult to fuse your designs. Place your pegboard on a flat, heat-safe surface. Set a household iron to the medium setting. Place ironing paper over the pegboard. In a circular motion, begin to iron the project. When ironed properly, the beads will still have open centers. DO NOT OVER-IRON as this will cause the beads to close and can make assembly of your project more challenging. Let the design cool.

Step: 4

Remove the paper and bead design from the pegboard. Flip the design over to expose the non-fused side. Repeat the fusing. Let cool completely. Once the design is cool, peel off the ironing paper. Your pegboards and ironing paper are reusable.

Note: Beads need heat for about 10-20 seconds per side to fuse evenly. Lift the paper occasionally to see how the beads are fusing. Additional heating time may be required.

Step: 5

ASSEMBLY: Glue these layers together in order from top to bottom, centering them on each other:

  • Deck
  • Hull 1
  • Hull 2
  • Hull 3
  • Hull 4
Step: 6

Glue the cockpit near the stern end of the deck (opposite of the pointy end).

Step: 7

Insert the bottom of the mast in the opening in the deck.
