Hello and happy weekend!
If you follow me on Facebook, you have already seen this photo, but sharing here again as it is a first for me and I am a little proud of it, even though it is not perfect.
My first ever button up shirt!
Thus far it is a prototype and so I left it plain, but I think I may do some raw edge applique or some stamping or painting.
What kinds of things do you put on boys shirts? Cars? Animals? I don't know quite yet what my plan is, so suggestions are welcome.
I am also working on a quiet book for D. I started this book last winter and now I am working on it again because we are going on a vacation that involves a long plane ride and this is something that will keep her busy for a little while.
|I made this page after seeing it done here.|
|These are the first pages I made, and I still have to make some letters to mail.|
|I also made three of these last winter, and just did the zipper page yesterday. I want to add some button on flowers to the zipper page yet. Should have shown it better, but are three finger puppets, a cow, a pig and a chicken.|
I am debating putting quilt batting between the pages to give structure, but it sure makes the book thick. Maybe something else? We'll see. I read some other sites about quiet books and they have put nothing between the pages and it seems to have been sturdy enough.
I hope to do another few pages and then be done with it finally. A book like this is definitely a labour of love, that's for sure.
