Flannel Friday - Have You Seen My New Blue Socks?

It's Friday once again!

A few weeks ago I picked up Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? by Eve Bunting. It's a very cute story about a duck who has misplaced his beloved clothing. His friends Fox, Ox, and the Peacocks help him look for his socks rhyming all the way. The pictures aren't quite bright or big enough to share the book in storytime, so I made it into a felt board.

Duck's shoes had to be removable, but they kept falling off, so I reinforced their stickiness with a piece of Velcro glued to the back. I didn't glue down the purple socks to the rocks in case I wanted to use the rocks with another set. All of the details on the pieces were made with puffy paint. I used The Flannel Board Storytelling Book (2nd ed.) by Judy Sierra and Felt Board Fun for Everyday and Holidays by Liz and Dick Wilmes for templates.

Andrea is hosting this week's roundup. You can find Flannel Friday on the FF blog, on Facebook, and on Pinterest.


  1. I just read that book, too. It's so funny.

  2. I have this book on my TBR pile at work. Can't wait to read it now. Love your peacocks!

    Thanks for sharing it this week!
    Have a lovely weekend,
