Sailboat Craft - By Adelaide

The thing needed to begin my sailboat craft 

Last night my little brothers, Michael and Gabriel, were making little boats out of tin foil. I wanted to try my hand at making one too... but a little different. I picked up a piece of foil and started shaping a hull, stuffing the hollow middle tightly with left over foil to make it solid. I then trimmed bamboo skewer sticks in half running the sharp end into the deck, along with some glue to make it firm. Finally I cut some fabric for the sail, hemming the edges and then tying it to the two masts. It turned out to be a miniature of the Nadejda!
