I made this book for a special baby named August. I was inspired by a lot of these books on craftster, but used the binding tutorial from this lovely project: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=211040.20

I sewed the whole thing by hand because I wasn't used to using felt on my machine, but I really like the homemade look it has. Since the pages include sewed-on buttons, I did tell the mom to only use the book together with the baby for safety (I've read these warnings on other posts).

Sorry my pictures aren't better...


No flash on this one


A is for Ant

U is for Umbrella

G is for Giraffe

U is for Unicorn

S is for Star (or Solar system)

T is for Train

The back ("By Aunt Mary")

Thanks for looking!!

Oh, I love it!!!  I love the improvement on the spine!  (I don't know if I like that my stitching showed).  But hands down my favorite are the pictures!  The unicorn!  The buttons!  The detail!  Awesomeness!!!
