Flannel Friday: Where’s My Teddy?


I’m back!

Things have been crazy at the library lately with SRC and a whole lot of other craziness. Not only have I not been making any new flannels, I just haven’t I’ve have the time or energy for blogging. I missed at least 2 #FFs in a row. Anyway, I decided to reach into my felt board vault and find the very first flannel board I ever made:

Where’s My Teddy by Jez Alborough

I love this book. And this is a pretty simple flannel board. There are only 4 pieces, but I made the bear big enough, that it’s risky to put all the pieces on one board. It’s too easy to knock all the pieces over when you’re switching the bears between the bear and the boy. So I use 2 boards side by side (even though the photo shows them all on a single board.) Also, I usually have the book on hand. The rhythm of the story is just one part of what makes this an awesome read-aloud, but it’s a pretty important part.

I don’t have a pattern for this one, but I could take a shot at making it from the pieces. I sketched them freehand, and  and cut the felt using my drawings.


He’s scared already!

How did you get to be so big?

Uh oh! Wait, what that sound?

How did you get to be so small?

Something’s not right here…

Oh, that make more sense!


And they each run home, jump into bed (I made a blanket to tuck them both in at the end, but I may have repurposed the felt for another story at some point.

Katie is our adorable host this week!

Mollie and Amy have done some retooling of the pinterest page. Thanks ladies! Check it out, and let them know what you think on the FB group.

Also, a few readers have told me the rss feed is giving them an error. If you’re having this problem, can you leave a comment, or email me cateinthelibrary |AT|g|mail|DOT|com (with details like the RSS url, and the reader you’re using)

  3. Thanks for reminding me about this book – it’s a long time since I read it, and as I’m doing a teddy themed week next week it’ll be perfect (sans flannel – no time). BTW, I use Google Reader and I’ve had no problems with your feed.
