An Army of Frogs
I learned something new today. I didn’t know that a group of frogs was called an army. I guess I have made an army of frogs this week.
The “pillow pet” or stuffed owl that I made for my 12 year old daughter to give to her friend a couple months ago:
turned out to be a big hit. Two friends asked for frogs and one asked for a horse. Since they aren’t very difficult to make, and it isn’t as often that what I do is “cool” so I obliged. Here’s the two frogs I made for her friends.
The backs are purple. The mouth of the one is too low, and the eyes looked cuter before they were stuffed, but the girls really liked them. So did my daughters teacher. She asked if I sold them! Ha! My daughter and I have both really liked her teacher this year. So making one for her was a no brainer. I took the leftover from the backs of the other too. Maybe frogs were meant to be purple. I turned one leg so you can see the fun back.
Always fun to make something for someone you appreciate that you know they will appreciate. Tomorrow is the last day of school, so perfect timing for a teacher gift! Who knew a large (I used a fat quarter for the front and another for the back) stuffed frog would be the perfect teacher gift!
