Hello Little One has a special meaning for this grandchild. She was born January 11, but I had yet to meet her due to COVID-19 social distancing precautions. She is three months old now and I have just met her.
I have made many cloth books but in my post for 3/24/13, I included instruction. Tips included
- Rough cutting pages first
- Stretching on bias to square up book
- Leaving final precise cutting to do through all three layers with batting
- Size of turning opening
- Preferred edge crisping tool
- Spine sewing process
Then I had an idea that I would like to revisit some day. People make T-shirt quilts to gather life time experiences. Perhaps I can gather these bits of miniature images from doll, animal, book panels and borders and make a Grandma baby memory quilt. I might have to appliqué each to a block, but I think I can rise to the occasion. Now I am about to make a mess, finding and gathering all those leftovers I was too chicken to throw out but too lazy to store logically. Sound familiar? The next collage is an indication of just how many of those scraps I have.
