Meheeh! It's true!

Yesterday I was fussing about because I felt bad because I didn't have a birthday present for my best bud (she knew and as fine...we're both poor students!) but I am going to go to her place for their family dinner/birthday celebrations and I wanted to have something!! (other than this random coaster I made for her...) And I was wandering about the internet wondering (hehe) and it hit me...TROGDOR! We are both rabid Trogdor fans! (And Strong Bad too, ooh ooh there'a a new sbemail...check it out!) And I had been looking at this papercraft board so I came up with this...
This is the front of the book. There's a nice heavy cardboard cover inside the felt and I embroidered a lovely trogdor on the front!

Here is the spine...

...and here you can see the corresponding stitches on the inside of the book...you can also see some lovely trogdor pictures I googled. I filled 'er up with 'em! There are some awesome Trogdor related things that people have made out there in the wide world...

This one shows the iniside cover and the back page...

And here are some random pages...

I left this page blank so she can print off this photo of  us with our Trogdor sandcastle we made...(I don't have a copy of it Sad)

So there you have it, my first ever book (if you don't count the little bitty ones I used to make during class in school with glue and pieces of paper...)
It has 12 pages and it doesn't close very well. I tied it shut with a ribbon for the moment...

Enjoy! ...I'd love to hear some feedback!

Rosie, that is FANTASTIC!  You did an incredible job!  Holy smokes!

I wish I had a friend who liked Trogdor so I could make one for her  Angry  It is positively TOO AWESOME.

Hooray for Trogdor! Your embroidery on the cover is perhaps my favorite thing I've ever seen embroidered... how playful and great!

I'm also really impressed with your binding technique and attention to detail - it was smart to use the two colors of felt to enclose the cardboard, and I like the contrast of the red (orange?) stitches.

I'm sure your friend will love it, and she's lucky to have a cool friend who's down with the burnination!

I wish I'd thought of this. But at least now I have a good theme idea for a at least one xmas present.
