Behind the design

I love that the calm, little smile stays the same for both the caterpillar and butterfly! It made the sewing tricky, but we wanted to show that even through big changes, it's still the same bug.

We loved this box, especially since we found caterpillars that we placed in a habitat. They have formed their cocoons, so we are waiting for the butterflies. Madisyn really enjoyed the match game!

I loved the way the Caterpillar could change again and again. Having something that could be repeated was so fun. The matching game and poster were beautifully done, and the whole crate has sparked a fun adventure into the world of insects and creepy things!
