Busy Hands: Overalls for Corduroy

One of Adelaide's favorite books is Corduroy. She loves hearing about Corduroy searching for his lost button, finding a friend, Lisa, having a new home with Lisa, and getting a new button. It delights her every time!

Last winter Adelaide had to stay in the hospital overnight due to complications from the flu. It was a scary and challenging time for a little 3 year old, but it ended well. Before leaving the hospital the nurses let her pick out a stuffed animal to take home. Adelaide chose a little bear that looked a lot like Corduroy!



Adelaide and Corduroy



The only problem was that he didn't have any overalls. He only had his fur coat! So we picked out some green yarn at Wal-Mart, and I crocheted some overalls for Corduroy. Adelaide helped me to pick out two white buttons for Corduroy's overalls.



Crocheting overalls for Corduroy kept my hands busy this spring as I rested in bed. Now Corduroy has overalls and two buttons, and Adelaide is one happy little girl!
