It began as a desire to have a few props for some of Leo Lionni’s books. I especially wanted to focus on It’s Mine. I began by drawing a frog and toad to be cut from wood, which I shall be sharing as soon as I cut out my toad. I then decided the frogs needed lily pads to jump around on. And then you have to ask yourself… what fun is a lily pad without a lily?
Although I was thinking of book props when I crafted this, I can think of many other ways this water lily could be utilized. Wouldn’t several of them look spectacular on your spring/summer nature table? I should have the tutorials up in the next few days. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this past week I only have time to craft and blog when the pups are napping! They are doing great, btw 🙂 Anyway, watch for the patterns and instructions over the next few days.
