For A’s first day at school, I made him a little worm from the most fantastic book: Wee Wonderfuls.  I am completely in love with this book and want to make just about every project. This project freaked me out a bit because Hilary named this after her grandmother, Evelyn, which is also the name of my maternal grandmother.  So, it was a nice homage (even though she was a bit of a cranky cow)!

So, I used a felted green sweater I had and spent one of my Editorial Meetings sewing her up!  It was still dark out when I left the house, so the pictures aren’t great and I feel like I may have made her look a bit like a robber rather than a bookworm, but there you have it.

A loved her and was really proud to take her to his teacher.  I hope the teacher does not think that we are a completely mad family!  I mean, a worm out of any context is a bit…well, it isn’t exactly an apple, is it.  I hope she gets it.  Maybe if I had sent an apple with it?

If you haven’t seen the book yet, you should find a copy. Next, I’m making the dress-up pillow from her book for a birthday party this weekend!

    Your Evelyn is super sweet…you gave her a nice little smile. Mine (renamed Wormy by P) turned out to be the cranky cow-type. I still haven’t brought her in to show you…I’ll do that next week :)
