Paula over at On A Rainy Night.... had a super idea this month: Story Time Stitches. She has invited fellow bloggers to create something based on a childrens' book illustration.
I really wished I could participate, but I am a zombie. Then, I somehow remembered that I already had created something based on a childrens' book. It's Sock Thing, one of Kipper the Dog's toys from the books by Mick Inkpen. And you know how we love Kipper around here. Not just the animated cartoons. We have the books, too!
So, I saw these tube socks at Target on clearance for 99 cents back when Valerie was two years old, and they immediately reminded me of Sock Thing. Once at home (OK, it was probably more like a few weeks later...) I sewed on googly eyes and a yellow pompom nose. There is another Sock Thing around here somewhere with a green nose, but he could not be found for the photo op.
What would you like to create based on a childrens' book illustration? There are still a couple of weeks left to participate. And Paula is even giving out a prize at the end of the month!
