This is what Juliet wants me to make for her....
Unfortunately, it is beyond my sewing ability. We checked this book out from the library recently and it was an instant hit.
Plaidypus Lost by Janet Stevens
The story is of a little girl and her plaidypus (which is a present from her grandmother).
He's sewn out of grandpa's old shirt and becomes a favorite companion who gets "lost" a lot. After we read it the first time through, she immediately said, "Let's make one of those!" (That's what I get for doing so many book-inspired crafts with her! She thinks we can make anything we see in a book!)
I told her there was no way I could do it. But she didn't believe me.
I'm not really sure what my next move should be.
But I think you should go check out this book. Your kids will love it.
