Flannel Friday: Five Little Squirrels

Just in time for fall, this week’s Flannel Friday is another flashback.  This week, we’re taking it back to the first flannel story I ever created for my version of “Five Little Squirrels.”

The song goes like this (to the tune of “Five Little Ducks”):

One little squirrel went out to play,

Up in the branches one autumn day.

He had such enormous fun

He called for another little squirrel to come.

Two little squirrels went out to play,

Up in the branches one autumn day.

They had such enormous fun

They called for another little squirrel to come.

Three little squirrels went out to play,

Up in the branches one autumn day.

They had such enormous fun

They called for another little squirrel to come.

Four little squirrels went out to play,

Up in the branches one autumn day.

They had such enormous fun

They called for another little squirrel to come.

Five little squirrels went out to play,

Up in the branches one autumn day.

They had such enormous fun

Then all scurried home ‘cause winter had come.

The pattern I found from Earthbound Trading Company here.  There are some other really cute woodland creatures with it, but I haven’t found a use for them yet.  The squirrel is a pretty simple outline, with accents for his neck and belly, and, of course, his acorn.  If I was doing this one over again, I probably would have looked for different colors to do the squirrels, but I think these guys are pretty cute, too.
