I have started making these for all the little kids in my life... I already made them all sock monkeys, so I had to think of something new Smiley lol
This one is for my best friend's son Banden, who is turning three next week.





I don't know what to call these! They need some sort of cute catchy name. What are they?
The purpose is for the child to learn how to spell their name and become familiar with the letters of their name.
Here are some of my ideas, tell me what ones you like or give me your own idea, if you wish!
 

*Name that Letter
*Hello, my name is _________
*Play on Words
*Alpha Booty







Let me know what you think! Smiley Thanks for looking!

This is such a great idea! If you had more pages, they could do the same for other words. I really like the name "Alpha Booty," but I would be inclined to make them all with pirate themes! The next one that I like is "Play on Words." I would say upi could sell these, but, if I had a dime for every time somebody said that to me about something I've made, I'd have more money than if I did try and sell them. LOL! Grin

Naming aside, great idea...  want to make one for an Ethan or a Joe?

Thanks everybody! Smiley I'm so glad you like them!
They take a long time to make, because there are three of each letter hand cut out of felt... I'm a slow cutter, lol.

My first choice was Alpha Booty, but maybe not everyone likes pirates (OK, I don't know anyone who doesn't like pirates, but maybe there is?)... Craftewoman, great idea to do more pages! I like Play on Words too... some other people have told me I should start selling these too, maybe I will! Smiley

I like Identi-Me too, Kelly! Mellybeans... that used to be one of my nicknames when I was little! Smiley

Ethan, Joe, Shane... all great names... I would love to make some more of these Wink

Smitten, yes, the carrying case was a must for me, everything seems to get lost in our house, so I thought it might help!

i love this!!!
It is so well made and i totally love the idea of pages with several words to spell out, what a great idea!!
About the name...
so I may be a total schmo... but i did NOT get alpha booty. Im not-anti pirate at all, maybe cause I have girls...? Undecided
Anyway , I have to think Im not the only one who wont have a clue what alpha booty is refering to. SO just my 2 cents! Tongue
I really want one, if I thought mine would turn out half as good as yours I'd attempt it!

Thanks mamafox! Smiley
I had a hunch that some people would feel that way about alpha booty, no worries! lol I appreciate the input!

Since a couple people have said their kids would like these...if anyone seriously does want one, send me a message and we could work something out Wink

I just made another one today, with the numbers 1-10 instead of a name. Fun fun!
