I have been holding on to this project idea since I saw it.  I knew that whenever I had a baby I would make one, and now at 7.5 months pregnant I have one of my own!

This project is based on this one by Plumpkin:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71926.0
I love this idea, and I absolutely adore the way it turned out!  We are naming our daughter Hazel, so here's the book for her!  Each page has a letter from her name featuring an animal whose name starts with that letter.  In Plumpkin's creation, the name used had a lot more letters than Hazel, so I decided to feature a shape on the back of each page to make the book longer.

Back Cover:

And here's a close-up of the zebra head, which I am particularly proud of, since all the stripes are hand-stitched with embroidery floss:

Thanks for looking!   Kiss

May I just say congratulations on the upcoming birth of your darling Hazel.

I have a 10 year old named Hazel after her great grandmother. I am happy that the older noble names are once again coming around! May she live up to her name!

BTW- awesome job as well. I wish I could do books. I just write the stories for the girls.

That's awesome! I love the idea in general and the fact my name is Hazel too doesn't hurt :p

summerluvin_ca - I think Hazel's a pretty timeless name actually. I know I've known all different ages of girls and women with the name. It just keeps goin' on

Available for personal swaps though I don't know what for yet...

Thanks for all the compliments!!  I am really proud of this project and I think she will love it.  I love the name Hazel too...we both like how it's old-fashioned and yet timeless also, girly but still adult.  I'm 29 weeks, so only 11 more at most to go!!!!

What a sweet book, but I just have to ask something... I thought those yellow and black beelike creatures were called bumblebees in english, so where is the H coming from? I'm swedish myself and in swedish they are called humlor.. so to me the H makes sense... just can't get it to match up with the english language.

Pretty things are the meaning of life, pretty crafted things are bigger than life.
