Frog Blanket

This new frog blanket is a big hit. E. says, "Hop hop hop hop hop..." every time he sees it. Polar fleece and flannel = uber cozy. 'Cuz the nights are still chilly, even if we're finally getting some well-deserved sunshine 'round these parts.

Frog Stuff

Next up in the crafting queue? Frog stuff. Frog pants and a frog blanket, to be precise. E. is currently a big fan of frogs ("Hop hop! Hop hop!") and has two stuffed frog friends, Hop and Ribbit. I'm continuing a tradition I started last Easter, wherein I make him a pair of pants for the holiday. This year it just seemed right to make frog pants so that he can hop around the house. We went to buy frog fabric and there were two different bolts that really caught his attention, so I decided to make a pair of pants out of the cotton he liked and a fleece-backed blanket out of the flannel he liked.

Off to fashion frog goods...
