I said in a previous post that we only sent two presents to New Zealand this year. The second was a cloth book for my other niece. Last year I attempted my first cloth book and I figured if I did basically the same thing again for my other niece then it wouldn't take so long and by the time my other sisters got around to having children I would be a pro! The only problem is that I am not very good at doing the same thing twice, so I ended up using the same basic concept, but completely different designs for each page. I started early this year though and really enjoyed fiddling away every now and then.
Some features of this book are (just in case you haven't worked them out, Adele) .... finger puppets that can be removed and played with from the front page, a cob of corn that can be unzipped, Mario Bros. houses with friends inside, and a fashion conscious clown who can change his hat when he feels the need.
Now all I need is for someone to have a boy so I can try out some really boyish designs!
A big thank you to Jacqui, who once again custom made a great bag to put it in. She currently has a sale on for anyone who is interested in her great bags!
