Felt Pirate Maps

I made Jeremy a pirate map for Christmas a couple years ago and since then I've made quite a few as birthday presents for little boys in our ward  or at school. Last year the kids had a week at preschool where they learned about pirates and Jeremy and Megan (who now has one as well) offered their pirate maps to the class to play with for the week.

At the end of the school year I offered to each of the preschool teachers to make their classes a couple maps. I figured it would take less than a week to get them all done and that I had all summer to do it.  Well, I completely forgot about it until the week before school started. Luckily, it really did only take a week (I finished sewing literally two minutes before we left to take Jeremy to preschool orientation) to make 9 maps. I gave each class two boy maps and one girl map.

If you want one (or two) I'll be happy to make you one for $5, or I can put a tutorial on the blog and you can make your own.

So... how much would shipping cost to the Seattle area :) They would be such fun Christmas presents! Seriously, though. I want some!
