Taking the concept that plumpkin so generously shared, I made a book out of felt and embroidery thread...

(And scroll down the page for another post with pics from another book)


cover of book... the design below the name is supposed to be a heart with dots around it (made out of knotted thread), but it's hard to see.


inside front cover -- baby's name and birthdate; E is for eggs


L is for ladybugs; E is for elephant


N is for nest; A is for alligator


back cover is purple polka dots with my name sewn in the corner.

I had such fun with this project -- many thanks to plumpkin for the idea!

Beautiful job.  I am working on a felt name book for a Xmas present for a 1 year old boy.  I am having lots of fun with it.  Great gift & nice handiwork!

Awesome job!  I saw the other felt book and loved it too!  Is it all handstitched or do you use a machine for putting the bigger pieces together?  Also how thick is the felt?  I mean is it thin like craft felt or thicker like fabric store felt?  Sorry for so many questions!

Thanks!!!  I've actually made a few books now... I don't do any machining -- I use felt glue to piece the things together, then sew every piece down by hand.  I started with only craft felt, but I buy felt by the yard from the fabric store when it's on sale.  Some of the felt at the fabric store is actually thinner than the pre-cut pieces from the fabric store, but I use some of everything.

What a beautiful book. I'm sure that will be one of the toys the baby remembers for her entire life! I might shamelessly steal that idea for my new baby cousin for Christmas. Fantastic colors and pictures.

Here's another one I made -- kind of a rush order, and the only pics I have are low quality...


I like the cover on this one, I like the red letters with purple stitches.


(last name deleted); O is for Octopus


W is for Whale; E is for Elephant
The color is off on this one, the background of the whale is actually a really pretty pale pink.


N is for Night -- those are pine trees cut out of the black felt, it's hard to see in this pic.
