March 2016. Felted Creatures. Day 22. Have Blanket, Will Travel
Have Blanket, Will Travel
Working mouse-sized again today. This one was inspired by one of my favorite Kevin Henkes books, Owen, a little mouse who took his beloved and ragged blanket with him everywhere. With school starting soon, others around him urged him to dispose of the dirty blanket, using every conceivable reason to do so. Nothing worked. Eventually his mother came up with the perfect plan. A delightful book that makes me wonder what kinds of little things some of us carry to provide that touch of comfort, security, fun, or good luck.
What do you keep in your possession that carries great meaning for you?
Have Blanket, Will Travel is made of needle felted wool and seed beads. Blanket included.
