Puppies, Puppies, Puppies!
On one of my excursions, I was wandering around JoAnn Fabrics and saw a darling piece of flannel fabric with these cute little dogs. They were so colorful with friendly facial expressions. I could not resist buying a yard. I knew it would be perfect for my next quiet book. By purchasing fabric with cute graphics, I can spend less time constructing my quiet books.
Five little dogs of different colors would be great for color recognition and matching.
I cut around the dogs and zig zagged the matching colors back to back. I was lucky enough that the dogs were facing in opposite directions so they could become two sided dogs.
Each puppy needed a bed of the same color to sleep in. Little pockets felt were sewn on for the dog beds.
I added a light purple dog dish with water and food just in case the puppies get hungry! As you can see the little yellow pup is having a snack.
On the back cover a red dog house was added. All the dogs can fit into the dog house.
There is a snap at the top of the dog house so all the pups can fit in.
A handle made from ribbon was added along the binding so the book can be easily carried by small hands.
Today I have linked up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday weekly Linky Party. I enjoy reading Kacey's blog. She has so many great ideas for the classroom. Check it out!
Please leave a comment if you have an extra minute. I'd love to hear from you. Enjoy your day!
