This book has legend status in our family. It's onto it's second
generation of legend status in fact.
It was my little brother's favourite, my own children's favourite,
and now one of the favourites of my little brother's boys
(along with The Wonkey Donkey, and Where the Wild Things Are and Bob the Builder!).
Alister Cookie, brother to The Woozle and Oliver Pickles, turned two last week.
So I wanted to make him something really special.
When I saw this material you can guess what it reminded me of...
Officer Flossy is my fav.
That's her disappearing of the page
with her stop sign.
Probably after Maniac Bug again.
Boy did they listen when she yelled STOP!
Except for Maniac Bug. He just kept right on going.
I used them a lot for my kids, and the patterns are still really funky,
and easy to trace, and make up very well.
The instructions for sewing however, are another matter entirely,
and I just give up and go by instinct.
They are SO long-winded
and just end up sounding like Charlie Brown's mother ...wah wah wah.
