Busy Book for Christmas….

Hi there, so I wanted to share with you the busy Busy Book I just finished for my best friend Cynthia’s daughter. She called me a while ago and asked me to make one for her daughter for Christmas. Well, I know I’m early, but you know me, once I start a project I have to finish it. 🙂 SO, here are some pics of it. My daughter Bella was by my side, “testing the product” as I was finishing each page lol. She of corse asked me to make her another busy book with some of the features in this one, especially the potatoe head page.

So for those of you who have seen my previous blog posts, about a year ago I made one for Bella. Here’s a link to the post. “Cloth Busy Book”. Well, I’m sure you can see I made this one a little different. Honestly, this one is made way better!! Instead of hot glueing everything together, except the pages, I’ve sewn all the pieces/pages. It’s so much more sturdy and will hold up longer. At first I wasn’t really looking forward to changing thread colors, but then I remembered I had clear thread, so I just used that for the entire book! It actually was a lot easier to sew everything then to hot glue it. Saved me time and the pain of burning my fingers on tiny pieces of felt. 😉

All in all, I had a blast making it, and I’m pretty sure I will be making more. Well, I know I have to make one for Bella at least. I’m thinking I’m going add a noah’s ark page, and Jonah and the whale, maybe a brush your teeth page. I don’t know, I’ll figure it out, however, I do know that I will definitely be making one in the same manner as I made this one. NOT the kind I made for Bella originally, sheesh that one was a pain in the neck!

Well, that’s it for today, thanks for reading, hope you have a wonderful Saturday!!

Cloth Busy Book!!!

Here it is!!!! The “mystery” project I’ve been working on for Bella! Unfortunately, she has to wait until Christmas to get it lol. But that’s ok, thankfully she doesn’t know what she’s missing tee hee. Anyway, I finished her cloth busy book sooner than expected, I just couldn’t stop, I think I was having way to much fun making it. 😉 So yea, it was actually pretty easy to make, just very time consuming. Lots of small details, and pieces to put together. Overall, I think it came out just awesome, it’s actually pretty durable too! I hot glued all the felt pieces together, but the pages are sewn, and made of fabric.

Well enough of my jibber jabber, I have lots of photos and I even made a little video of it for you guys! Hope you enjoy looking/watching, and as always, thanks for reading. Talk to you all again soon!

Quick Update!

Hi all, sooo sorry it’s been a long while since I’ve last blogged about anything. I’ve been insanely busy lately. 😦 But good news, I’ve been busy with my sewing machine again. The project I’m working on is…well, I’m almost done with it, and when I’m finished, I’ll show you all pictures of it. Here’s a hint, it’s for my daughter Bella, but it’s not clothing or a bag lol. And I’m actually only sewing a small portion of it!! Yes, my arts and crafts side is coming out again, not just my sewing. 😉

Well I hope you all are having a wonderful day/night. Going to catch up on some Zzz’s and all that good stuff. Talk to you all again real soon!
