I was incredibly inspired by this name book I found on here a few months ago.  I loved the level of detail and color choices, and decided to make one for my son who will be 1 in a few months!! 

Here's the inspiration:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281256.0

And here's my result:

Thanks for looking!

That is soo beautiful!! I really can't believe what you were able to make with felt, all the little cuts and stitches, you did such an amazing job, I really can't believe it!! You're pages are sooo detailed! The letter are so awesome!! I am seriously sooo blown away. You did such a fantastic job, I have to comment about every page!

It's so awesome you named you're child something that is easily transformed into a picture!! I didn't know that Drake had to do with ducks, but I knew right away from you're picture. THe detail on the duck and the reeds is so awesome! I love the brown border!!!

The dragon is way too cute, but I seriously can't believe the detail you put into the brick work, and even the little armoured guy! WOW!!

The tree in the rabbit page is so pretty, I love the swirls, but I also love that the flowers on the tree are hearts! ANd the tiny, tiny, tiny bird, wow!

All those different layers in the alligator page are soo pretty!! I also love how you made the A to go along with the theme!!

I like how you incorporated the K into the flag!! I love the stars in the background! The details are so amazing, I love the ears on the Kangaroo and the babbs head pokeing out!! I almost didn't see the boomerang

The Heron page, or Egret (I had to look it up!!), is soo beautiful! The detail of the bird, and it's legs and the rolling sea is such a beautiful combination! I really love this page!! I love the E you used on this page!!

THe trees in the rino page are way too cute!! I really can't believe how detailed you were about all of this! It really is amazing!! The R is sooo cute!!

The Eagle page is also sooo beautiful. It's breathtaking, really!! I love the sun and the double layer clouds!! But the detail in the eagle, it's feathers, and it's feet sticking out is just soo wonderful!! I love the brown/orange color combo!

THe elephant is soo cute!! I love the triangle background.

THe donky is way too cute! It's eyes, and ears, and how it's legs are so short make is addorable!! I love the ice toped mountains in the background!!

THe mommy and baby giraffe are sooo cute!! I don't know why, but I seriously love those letters.

THe little embroidery on the back, is the pefect finish to a book! I love that you dated it.

YOu son is so lucky to have a mother as dedicated and hard working as you!!

I absolutely agree with the comments of audio-astrophysics.
The pages as a whole look beautiful, but if you look a bit longer you really get engulfed in the awesome details.
The whole book fits together, and the last pages really finish it.

It's the kind of book where you partially hope it will be the most drooled-upon book ever.
And at the same time hope it will survive the years.

No interesting signature yet........

Beautiful job. It's gorgeous! I'm a teensy bit font-obsessed, so the letters are my favorite part. Wink

You must be the most amazing mother in the world!
That is both heavily skilled and detailed, but the cutest thing EVER!

Well Done! That is amazing, I hope that gets cherished!

Thank you all for your replies!  Audio! Thanks for such a detailed critique!  It was a lot of fun to work on this.  Each little thing I did made such a big difference.  

BTW, the kangaroo page is the Australian flag (the stars, blue background and upper left design).  I added the kangaroo, and the boomerang because my husband throws boomerangs!

Also- Drake is a dragon as well.  So that why I used that for the first page!
