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!!

Happy Easter!!!

Hi everyone, so yes I know it has yet again been a very long time since I last gave you an update. My excuse? Sickness overwhelmed my house for about a month, then potty training, and then…sadly my laziness. 😦 Good news though I am starting to get back on track!!

Ok so on another note, it’s EASTER!!! And as a fun project I made my little one an egg shaped easter basket! It was a messy and fun process, I used the tutorial by HMH Designs. AWESOME TUTORIAL, I’m soooo happy I found it. I didn’t have fabric stiffener though, so I just used tacky glue and mixed an even ratio of water with it. lol it’s also a cheaper way to make fabric stiffener, just a little tip/fyi. Anyways check it out, it’s a great project to do.

Now the egg I made is a little more narrow, I didn’t have a balloon as big at the one she had, wish I did, but it still came out great! It is actually very round, but in the photos it looks a bit bumpy. The basket tends to be very flexible!. Here are some picks of the egg and stuff. Hope you enjoy, and have a very HAPPY EASTER!
