Ethan's Rocket Ship

I found out that my friend's son had his 4th birthday today (I always forget that his birthday is January 1st). I also found out that he was sick today and they weren't going to be able to really celebrate his birthday today. Feeling bad for the little guy, I decided that I wanted to make something to cheer him up. He's all about rocket ships (any toy that remotely resembles a rocket is a "rocket ship!" to him), so I whipped up this little rocket ship for him this morning out of sweater scraps and felt.

He was too grumpy to be really excited about it when I stopped over to give it to him, but his mom reassured me by letting me know he'd be snuggling with it and playing with it later.

* (Oh yeah...Happy New Year!)

Happy New Years, and these are just adorable!

I love how you used the ribbing to make the rocket part.

Hope your friend's son feels better.
