just wrapped up another round of One Tiny Book, and this is what i came up with for my awesome partner hgddm!



i was inspired by a nautical theme on hgddm's pinboard and just ran with with it.  the book is an altered childrens book that measures 3"x3"



images are cross stitched on 16 count aida.  the pages are also wrapped in good ole jute twine.



the little bugger was really hard to photograph once assembled because of the cover!


the shark is my favorite...just cracks me up!

back cover:



and a pic of them all!


i had a complete blast making this little book!  i've never done anything this mixed media before and am so pleased with out it came out Smiley  would love to hear what you all think about it!

thanks for looking!

I had no idea this was your project Spidermom, I saw it and loved it, that crab is so cute and I'd never thought of mixing cross stitch in this kind of project, This was be such a great idea for a quiet time book too wouldn't it?

Love it  Grin Grin

Perfect! I have so many little board books with chewed up edges, or fallen apart binding, and I can't bear to part with them- upcycle! Thank you!
