The boys are absolutely crazy for The Very Hungry Caterpillar storybook. We read it at least 4 times a day and they have specific words that they like to say when I get to certain parts of the book like "pop" and "cocoon". It is precious to watch their faces light up and say those words as if they were the storytellers. Anderson and Jake never miss their cues.
So when I saw this fabulous Hungry Caterpillar fabric, I just knew I had to make them something from it. When the fabric arrived yesterday their eyes were huge in amazement and they couldn't stop pointing at the swiss cheese, cupcake, lollipop, etc... Jake repeated tatapillar over and over while Anderson insisted I tell him what each food item was. It was more sweet than the storybook itself.
This afternoon we made a trip to the fabric store and they helped me pick out some soft minky fabric for the back of their blankets. I spent their naptime and the past three hours cutting, piecing and sewing it all together. I only have one of them complete and knowing how well my bubbies "share", I'll be working hard to finish the second.
