I have been holding on to this project idea since I saw it. I knew that whenever I had a baby I would make one, and now at 7.5 months pregnant I have one of my own!
This project is based on this one by Plumpkin: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71926.0
I love this idea, and I absolutely adore the way it turned out! We are naming our daughter Hazel, so here's the book for her! Each page has a letter from her name featuring an animal whose name starts with that letter. In Plumpkin's creation, the name used had a lot more letters than Hazel, so I decided to feature a shape on the back of each page to make the book longer.
And here's a close-up of the zebra head, which I am particularly proud of, since all the stripes are hand-stitched with embroidery floss:
Thanks for looking!
