The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I love this story. The paintings are bright and appealing to little kids. Kaleb and I saw a felt board set of the story and both agreed that they wanted too much money for something that wasn't really made very well. Kaleb told me that I could make a better one. So I went to work on it and this is what I came up with. It was one of those quick and easy projects. I like keeping my hands busy. Not that I don't have a million other things to be doing. I just work a few minutes in here and there. I did alot of it at the table while the big kids were doing their school.
It was fun coming up with all of the different versions of food. I like the pie and the stawberries the best. Of course the fat caterpillar is cute too. I made a fabric bag a few days ago made from red and white tablecloth print with black ants crawling all over it. I couldn't resist. It turned out really cute. I really like the idea that I have just been using the resources that I have on hand. Though my supply is getting pretty low. It is always good to get to the bottom of things every once in a while.

You out did yourself again, Pam. Those are great. I can't believe you just whipped those together. They are very cute and well done. I am impressed.
