Like I said, this one was easy to make. I used the patterns in Judy Sierra's Fantastic Theater. I copied the patterns for this story (the dog and the bone) from page 68 onto plain paper and traced it onto black cardstock. Then I cut them out and taped a flexible drinking straw to them. For the text, I like the version found in Jerry Pinkney's collection.
For the backdrop, I used a copyright-free bridge image from Open Clip Art. I cut and pasted it into Publisher, where I adjusted the size. Then I printed out on a transparency sheet (make sure you buy inkjet safe ones if you're using an inkjet printer!!) and drew the water in with blue permanent marker. I could have drawn the water in on the computer but I like the effect the hand-drawn water has.
Happy Second Birthday, Flannel Friday! If you missed it, I wrote last week about "What Flannel Friday Means to Me."
