The other project is a baby fabric book. Such a fun little make. Quick, easy and fulfilling. For the cover I used Daddy's old shirt (I could not part with the cotton of such a great quality) and a couple of buttons that came from an old baby outfit.
The best thing about this book is that it has crinkly pages. Thanks to Dina's tip, I used a plastic* bag from cereal between the pages. The pages make fun noise that our Little One loves. I used small pieces of different fabrics with fun prints. The only thing is that I don't have a choice of boy's fabrics in my stash, so I had to stick mostly with pinks and flowery prints.
When I first thought of making a baby book, I had a different idea in mind that required a bit more time. I was going to make some applique and embroidery on each page. But then I saw my Little One curiously inspecting my sewing machine cover. He kept scratching the pictures on it with his tiny fingers one after another while I was holding him in my arms. He looked so cute and busy that I decided to make a small fabric book for him immediately. We can sing a Humpty Dumpty song or Baa Baa Black Sheep.
We can check out all the colours, count the pretty flowers, chickens and cute deers or simply make noise by flipping the pages.
It does not matter what we do, as long as we are having a good time together, learning new things and exploring the world around us and I get a chance to do a bit of sewing as well. Talking about sewing, I am off to try and finish my Artist Trading Card that is almost ready for VeryBerryHandmade swap. I can't wait to share it with you and send it off to my secret partner. Hope you are having a wonderful week and good night sleep! :-) Larisa xox
* Note to self: Oh, one tiny but important detail, if I ever make a book or anything else with plastic inside, I should make sure not to iron it at all or iron it on the lowest temperature setting. I almost ruined the finished book with my love for ironing. :-)
