Flannel Friday - Pete the Cat and the Santa Hat

A library can never have too many Santa hats and this week even Pete the Cat has a hat!

Pete the cat and his Christmas Hat
Our storytimers are BIG fans of Pete the Cat, especially the first book and the song I Love My White Shoes.  For the last storytime sessions of the year our four visiting Nursery classes and our Baby and Toddler Rhymetimers will be treated to a reading and a singing of Pete the Cat Saves Christmas. The Pete books are so popular in our library that folks have started putting reservations on them.
NOW you can see my poor sewing!
So, to mark the occasion, I made Pete a Santa hat. Just a triangle of red felt/flannel, some white trimmings, and a bare 2 minutes sewing (when gluing failed). I think you'll agree he looks very smart. Now, off to practise the song again from the MP3 file that the publishers have thoughtfully provided together with an information page and a Christmas event kit.
Although this book is fun, and I know the kids will love it because it's Pete, I still much prefer the first Pete book. Because of my enthusiasm for I Love My White Shoes I even spent too long making these in an earlier post.

I hope all you Flannel Friday-ers enjoy your last few storytimes of 2012!
