This is a project I started months ago when an old friend had her new baby girl.
It stayed buried under a pile of stuff for a while but I finally decided to finish it.

I wanted to make a small 8 pages book with cute animals in it.
I started with some sketches (the pic only shows the designs I decided to keep but there was more):




Then I cleaned them up in photoshop and digitized them for machine embroidery:




And here's the book, with her baby's name on it:











I'll be sending it soon, I hope the baby likes it!

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
