Noah's Ark


There hasn't been any sewing going on this week in this household, but I still dug up something to show off. I decided to share the most difficult thing I've ever made. Well up to this point, anyway, we know not what the future holds.

Perhaps 18 years or so ago, I was shopping with my youngest son. He saw this pattern and asked "Mom, will you make this for me?" Well, who could turn down this adorable 5 year old?




This is a zippered top Noah's Ark, with enough room to hold all the animals and Noah. Notice how you can identify the girl polar bear by her pink flower and the boy by his blue one? The boy kangaroo wears a tie and the girl has a pouch. And of course a girl zebra has pink stripes and a boy has blue! For some reason, there is no difference between the boy and girl giraffe.

While they are waiting out the flood, they can even look out the windows.

What a wonderful memory and such a cute Ark set! I love the gender differentiation...the giraffes? I'm not even sure why God made them with such long legs and necks! LOL

Thank you, thank you for sharing such a sweet Friday Finish!

Blessings!
