a book of colors for a sweet baby

We are back from our family vacations,
where I was able to meet my new niece.
Since she was 6 months old,
it was time for me to make her a soft book:

I previously made books for my American niece and nephew:
they were older at the time so for this one, I went with a simple concept: colors

I was inspired by these 2 tutorials from

Each page has its own color,
I tried to find interesting fabric with animals or flowers.
Miss C. was in charge of color order, she is truly an artist,
I am merely a crafter!

the book ended up a little thick so I had to hand stitch the cover to the pages.

I managed to put some science in them.....

it is never too early to start!

She is a very happy baby ,
it was so much fun to hang out with her!

Happy sewing!
