oobles the snake

oobles is a ‘children’s' book i made for suzanne’s
(aka west coast pony) 29th birthday.
excuse the photos –
i didn’t get a chance to take the myself, so they are a little blurry.

here’s oobles:

oobles is a vegetarian snake and he gets very sick when he eats meat:

oobles dreams of eating vegetables:

in the story he meets a mouse:

who dreams of eating meat:

i won’t ruin the end of the story for you
but i imagine you get the idea.

so for her 30th very belated birthday she requested an oobles purse.
well, it took a long time…
i am always backed-up on craft projects
(the whole graduate school thing)
but i finally mailed it to her
and she received it last night so i can now
show you pictures!

here is the front of the purse with the mouse
(remained nameless in this story
but he will return in future stories):

here is the back of the purse with oobles:

oobles detail:

a little surprise under the flap:

steak!

(i hope it looks like steak)
i imagine that people who have not read "oobles"
will be very perplexed by the steak.

i hope she likes it and i hope you like it too!
it was fun to make for my dear west coast pony.

next special request purse in the works is for f.pea!
