It's been quite a while since I've popped in to look at all of the comments, but I'm just tickled that SO many of you have done your own Felt Name Books - I love seeing all of the letter variations!

1. What animal could you use if somebody happened to have an X in their name? 
2. Do you think it's possible to make one without sewing?

1. You could do a Xenops. It's a small bird. (That's what I would do anyways.. hehe)

2. You could probably use fabric glue. I actually glued most of the pieces on and then just stitched afterwords. It was a hassle having the pieces slide around, but the glue worked nicely. I'm not sure how strong it would be with just glue...but you could at least try it out.

how in the world did you paint so tiny? and what type of paint did you use?

I used acrylic paint and a teeeeny brush. I did the details (stitching and outline) with a black pen.

I love it! Where did you buy the original mirror - 5 pegs would be perfect for my kids coats behind the front door!

I got it from a discount place here called Xcess Cargo. It's a terribly shoddy place with a horrible return policy and everything there is cheap.

I would think that you could find something similar at Home Sense or Home Outfitters or something. It's a pretty cheap mirror - 25 bucks or so - so maybe even at Ikea or Jysk.

how many have you sold?

I haven't sold any yet, but to be honest, i've been so busy elsewhere that I haven't really promoted it at all. If anyone is seriously interested in a buying/swapping for a book or even a single panel to be frame puh-lease let me know...  Cheesy

That's lovely! How did you make the leaves on the sides, or get them to stay that way?

The leaves on the side are/were english ivy leaves from a house plant. They were dried enough that they held a shape. I coated them with acrylic medium gel and when that dried it gave them a kind of plasticy effect. I could bend them without cracking. I then painted the gel on the side of the box and used it kind of like a glue to hold the leaves on. Then after they were dried and stuck on well, I painted them with regular artsist acrylic paint and used a pen to draw on the veins.

The leaves on the top were done exactly the same way, but because they are so small it was a lot easier.
