Diy soft book for baby
Nora's Homemade Cloth Activity Book - Andrea DekkerIt has been on my mind to make her a book for AJ using photos of our family. So I decided recently to combine both of these ideas to create a cloth baby book. I must warn you that I am most definitely an amateur seamstress, straight lines are my limit and I am sure that more experienced crafters will laugh at my attempts and explanations in this simple tutorial. Choose your photos and using your preferred editing software I use Photoshop but I believe the free, online programs PicMonkey and Pixlr have similar capabilities to convert the images to black and white. Crop and resize the photos to suit the size of your cloth book. Mine were 16cm x 11cms. Our book has five images in total.
Impressive DIY: Soft, taggie book from quilt fabric
I have been playing with felt lately in my quest to make a quiet book my very first based on fine motor and life skill development. That book is doing very well and is almost done. With my youngest turning 2 next month I thought to make her her own quiet book filled with things that would interest her. I need to replace them! Update again! See the bottom of this post! Firstly decide on how many pages you are going to make.
The story of this book starts when I stepped inside a small toy store of handmade toys. Everything was so inspirational! I fell in love with everything. I wished I had my camera with me to take pictures of the setup and toys. I drew sketches, took notes.
With clear step by step instructions and a Free Design Space File, you can make this cute baby toy and personalize it for your little one. Various colors of wool felt at least 7 inches by 13 inches in size I used colors from this collection. Scraps of fabric with different textures. In the example I used oil cloth, minky, bonded glitter fabric, and terry cloth. Cricut Rotary Blade.
