I've been dying to make this project for weeks ... 1) because I know by my calculations of when each week would happen that the school year would be almost done; and 2) because as soon as I saw the project in the book, I knew exactly how I would make it. I saw the super cute little rainy day mug rug and knew that it needed something ... a face. A cute face, with French knot eyes.
So, I made a whole set of them. There's a reason for the faces, and the phrases : as a French/Spanish teacher, whenever I teach the weather, I have this strange need to draw cute little faces on the clouds, the sun, etc, along with the phrases that they represent. My "wind" face has a little circle mouth with swirls of wind coming out, but he didn't make it onto these mug rugs. Instead, I have the question in French, "Quel temps fait-il?", or What's the weather like?
His friends are "il fait beau", or it's beautiful;
another happy little guy is "il neige", or it's snowing;
and "il pleut" (it's raining) always has that little smirky face. Why? I bet you can guess which weather I like the least!
I backed the fabric with a random Eiffel Tower print I picked up, which I think reflects the gray wording on the front side.
One fits in perfectly with the sunny afternoon we've had here in Colorado today.
Quel temps fait-il chez vous?
