I lost steam about a month into it and the book sat on my craft table unfinished, only to be resumed a few weeks later. I decided to take the long route and sew everything. I've seen some books like this where the maker used "wonder under" and ironed the pieces on. I want my book to get many years of good use, so I sewed everything.
This book took countless after bedtime hours, but I think it's worth it. Next step, I'm going to make a bag for miss Kassidy to carry this baby in to church. She loves it by the way, so it's a success. Here are some pictures of the pages if you're interested.
Snap on shape page.
Barn with adorable finger puppets inside.
Tic Tac Toe board with velcro pieces. Surprisingly, this was the easiest page to make, and it's also Kassidy's favorite page to play with. Go figure!
Counting flower with velcro.
Stackable ice cream cone with a pocket to hold ice cream and toppings.
There's a flavor for any taste!
Button on bubbles. (this was a last minute page because I needed one more. I don't love it, but it works)
Find the mouse doors and windows. This idea was my cute husband's. He was excited to contribute and came up with many more ideas after I was done with the book. I may be adding more pages after I've recovered for a few months :)
There it is!
Hand goes in the mitten.
Kassidy doll's clothes line and laundry basket.
Build a snowman. The pieces just sit on the flannel square.
Here's the pocket to keep the snowman pieces.
Notebook and pen pockets.
Back zipper pocket with Mr and Mrs. Potato Head-like faces with pieces. I'm making a few more accessories and appendages.
