Felt Color Book


I'm so excited to have finally finished this book! I got the idea to make it for Morgan, because she couldn't stop looking at a color book I had made for Blake years ago. Problem was, it was paper, and she wasn't being very easy on it.


I thought I had pictures of steps prior to this, but it's pretty basic. I just decided on a size and cut rectangles out of some felt I had. Then I dug through my fabric stash & picked out some of each color.

I cut different sizes and shapes, decided on placement (leaving room for color names) and stitched them on.

Then I dug out the embroidery thread and got busy with the lettering.




I did the lettering freehand so it isn't perfect, but that's ok.




(Morgan got a hold of the scissors.)







When that was finishes I laid them out in order, back to back, and stitched them together.

I poked a hole in the corner of each with a needle & a knitting needle, and ran a binder ring through to connect them.

And there you have it!

Very cute. Wish I was crafty. That would even be a good baby shower gift or young child bday gift.

So cute Wendy. You know you could probably sale those as quiet books. They'd be great to give the kids at church since they don't make a lot of noise.
