this ex-hamilton city library book caught my eye at an op-shop a few weeks ago and when i went back on tuesday it was still there so i knew it must've been waiting for me! :)
the illustrations are fascinating. gesso paint on boards of plywood.
and the story/poem is just gorgeous.
perfect for a bunting for a little boy's room (corner) don't you think?
the easiest bunting i've ever made!
i cut a triangular template, picked the best pics and parts of the poem, cut them out with a craft knife then sewed a ribbon across the top. easy-peasy!
and the coolest thing? no other little boy in the world has one the same :)
