Let's bury the hatchet. Quickly.

This took me and my boyfriend forever and a day to make. It was for his niece, Siani's 1st Birthday. Thanks for the idea, Plumpkin! It was Paul's idea to add the photos. It includes her middle and last name, too. We sewed the words onto the pages to make it a bit more educational. We put a few Australian themes in there because, well, we're Aussies. We had to photoshop the photos a bit, and air brush bits because some of the photos weren't great and we couldn't tell her parents why we wanted the photos!  Wink





S is for Sunflower (and sister)



I is for Icecream



A is for Alphabetti Spaghetti (thanks to Jasmin, from my old workplace, for helping me with that idea!) You might be able to see 'Alphabetti Spaghetti' sewn into the edge of the 'bowl'.



N is for Nanna (and Nettie). It was Paul's idea to put her nanna's face there. He was worried about her reaction because she's doesn't look like that, really. He had to airbrush her fringe off the photo before we printed it and ironed it onto some felt.



I is for Island (Siani and her dad)



J is for Jelly (I love this one because J was the hardest one to come up with a good idea for).



E is for Echidna



W is for Whale (Siani and her sister). That one was a bit hard to cut/sew around because of the type of fabric I ironed the photo on to.



E is for Emu



L is for Leaves (Siani and Mum)



The last page with her surname.



And Paulie arranging one of the pages (we originally had 'Crocodile Hunter' for the C in Patricia, then we found out her middle name is Jewel, not Patricia! Oops!)

Oh, and the spine!



Pffffewww!

Not only is that amazingly done, that is one of the best ideas for a little girl ever. So beautiful, and she'll (hopefully) have it forever.

Kovurr is an idea, but someday it will be real.

Julz - You and your boyfriend did a magnificent job on this felt book.  It is a wonderful gift idea that has a personal touch.  I really like the pictures and creativity that put into it.  I'm sure that the book will be a childhood keepsake that Siani and her family will enjoy for years to come.  Grin

What an amazing and special gift!  You both did a beautiful job! 

Also, as the bearer of a "different" name that you can't find on anything, it is so awesome for her to have something no one else has that has her name all over it, I'm sure she will love it!

It's a Bernina. Not sure what year- 70's, I think. It's a 730.
