It's funny where creative inspiration comes from. This particular project was inspired by a song. A song I sing just about every day to my son. He loves it! Even as an infant, he would perk up to Five Green and Speckled Frogs.So I set out to make 5 very green and very speckled frogs that he could play with while we sing the song!
I used a frog template to cut out 2 green frog shapes per frog--10 total. It was pretty tricky matching these up perfectly. I made a "figure eight shape" out of white and black felt for the eyes. The fun part for me was using Wonder-Under to attach all of the spots onto the frogs... even on the backs of them!! Our five green and speckled frogs needed to be truly speckled, after all. I sewed a red mouth and then stitched all the way around the frogs, stopping just long enough to add just a bit of stuffing for each frog's tummy.
This little frog is my favorite. I like his big dopey smile. They each have their own special "personality" and did not end up identical, but I like that.
I was dying for this little drooling dude to wake up in the morning and meet the froggies!!
