Flannel Friday: Fall Is Not Easy

Slacker! It’s a nutty week so I’m just showing you my version of Katie’s version of Fall Is Not Easy by Martin Kelley. I was so excited about this flannel that I made this from Katie’s post before I had seen the book.

When the book came in, I read it to my 10 year old daughter, and we seriously got the giggles. Since then I’ve been carrying it around to show everyone I know, but apparently I am the LAST PERSON IN THE WORLD to learn about this one, since everyone is all, Mel, we’ve seen it already!

Now that I know what some of the other “wrong leaves” are (see also Nicole’s version!) I might have to go back and add a few more, or make up my own.

The tree is a larger version of the tree pattern I used for Blue is the Sky. I decided to glue it to another piece of felt so that it wouldn’t be too floppy. I chose blue, but you could match it to the background color of your flannelboard, too.

I want to send a special shout-out this week to my Colorado library connections: you know who you are! Thanks for your encouraging words about Flannel Friday. Your support and enthusiasm is amazing.

Find this week’s round up at Anna’s blog Future Librarian Superhero. Past round ups and future hosts are listed at So Tomorrow. And of course you can see all the ideas at our Pinterest account. Mollie just started a Flannel Friday group on Facebook, so you can FIND US THERE TOO! And if you’ve ever posted a Flannel Friday on YOUR blog, don’t forget to add the new blog button to your widgets!

Another few months of this, and we will be poised to take over the world! So have a great week!

    I like the purple with hearts leaves best! (Although, all of them are lovely!)

    Hooray for you. I thought about flannelizing this same story this week. I went to get the felt supply and it is a sad sad pile of scrapage. So, this week we’re doing story cards. I’m glad you did it though, it reminds you have that great tree!!

    This looks great! Mind if I copy?

    Thanks all! LQ, check out Katie’s post for more about the story. Copy away, I copied from her! But get the book if you can, it’s a gem. (Though I just looked it up on Amazon.uk and it’s expensive! Boo!)

    Katie, my daughter’s favorite from the book was “Eat at Joe’s.” My favorite is still the smiley face! Sharon, we are so in sync lately–The Mouse and the Apple and now this! What will we do next week? 🙂
