Tall Ships – Sewing Viking Sails

As part of our Tall Ships project, which we have combined with our Viking Topic, we are creating Viking long ships. Our first task has been to sew the sails for our ships. We know that Viking long ship sails were made from several long strips of wool, sewn together. Some of us chose to replicate this design while others wanted to use Viking runes which represented an initial of our name as our main design. We used running stitch and cross stitch to complete our patterns. Take a look at the process we went through.
