Joining in on #flannelfriday, I’m showing a kite flannel I made this week for “Play” storytime in April/May. (All the pictures are linked up to the large file, if you want more detail.)
This is basically a felt base layer, some quilting squares I bought at Joanns, and a felt frame over the fabric. Ribbon for the tails, and more of the fabric for the bows. My amazing co-worker brought in pinking shears and fray check to make sure the bows stood up over time!
Here’s my rhyme:
Five Little Kites
One little kite in the sky so blue,
Along came another, then there were two.
Two little kites flying high above me;
Along came another, then there were three.
Three little kites, just watch them soar,
Along came another, then there were four.
Four little kites, so high and alive
Along came another, then there were five.
Five little kites dancing across the sky,
What a sight to see, way up so high!

And I used the kite part of the Oriental Trading craft we’re doing to make a template, if anyone wants a copy — I will be sure to try and scan the foam piece in for you when I’m back at work on Monday!
