This is another Christmas present that I made this year,
this time is for my nephew who is 9 month old.
I made a more complicated book for his sister when she was older,
this one is quite simple with almost no moving parts.
I followed this tutorial from Lella boutique,
but putting some of my own spins on the picture.
First thing first: there is always a need for dogs in any book!
Then of course, Dinosaur and Elephant have to join the fun,
they are simple applique shapes, the elephant has a few more details,
both have nice textures, the eyes are sewn, nothing to pull!
I cheated for the hungry little caterpillar,
as I had a print, I did a lot of quilting to add texture,
once washed it should be even cutter.
I sewed a little pocket and put in a little puppy, there are never too many dogs in a book!
It should be safe enough for a little one, but if not, it is easy to remove it
and keep it for some later time.
The truck is also just a simple applique, with different texture from the use of various fabric,
felt for the wheels, chenille for the dirt.
