We have just made our second book pal and we are in love. If you haven't read the picture book series Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean, you are missing out. To get an idea, click on the books and rock away. Just imagine a class of first graders singing away...you will fall in love too.
We dug some blue fabric out of the fabric scrap box. It was a little dark, but we thought it would work. Mama Thrift just cut it out by eyeballing it. She is so good, she only had to re-cut the head twice. The eyes and nose were from felt and the mouth and eyebrows were black floss. My job was the stuffing the body. I love the final result.
"And we 're rockin' in our thriftin' shoes. Oh we're rockin' in our thriftin' shoes" Catchy isn't?
