This was the book that started it all for me as a creator of flannel board figures. Judy Sierra's techniques create beautiful long lasting figures. I use her felt collage technique as much as I can. It is worth the effort. I also use patterns from Mother Goose's Playhouse: toddler tales and nursery rhymes with patterns for puppets and feltboards / by Judy Sierra.
All the stories and activities have the Teddy Bear character. I love these ideas! This winter I plan to make the "the snowman story".
This is one of my favorite sources for quick flannel ideas, divided by season.
Toddler Storytimes II / Diane Briggs ; illustrations by Thomas Briggs. Lanham, Maryland : The Scarecrow Press, Inc. 2008.
Lots of clean line patterns. This winter I plan to make the Funny Ducks theme.
