E - I - E - I - O!
I have been wanting to join the Quiet Book/Felt Craft group for awhile. Matter of fact, I've had a stash of felt sitting in the craft closet for a substantial amount of time. It was cohabitating nicely along with the numerous amount of yardage of fabric. I'm apparently a hoarder.
But anyway, with the breakdown of my sewing machine (R.I.P), I've decided to finally start on a quiet book for Isabel. (handsewing is......calming) With the progress that I am making, and with the decision to cut spending, I may be able to produce a book with 10 pages, oh, by next year!
Good thing I had all the necessary supplies for the first page ( I used white cotton for the page itself, and felt for everything else. I obviously did not read the "try to use fabric where possible for easy clean-up" tip. I'm rectifying that for future pages)
I started with a barnyard scene - I took inpiration from Jill's book here (ok, it was almost a blatant copy!), as well as from other farm scenes from Isabel's substantial book/puzzle collection. Drafted it out....
And well...it didn't really turn out exactly - I got lazy. (Note to self - do not be lazy - always pin, pin, PIN!)
I may or may not continue to add more details to the scene. We'll see how OCD I get.
So, who's in the barn?
We have a little pig for the little pinky finger, a cow, a duck and a chicken.
They are little finger puppets
And who's hiding behind the top barn window?
Or maybe "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" would be more fitting....
Tested it out on the core user...
Isabel likes the pig.
Working on a doll's house concept right now...Not sure if it will turn out exactly the way I envisioned, but I'll update when it's done (don't hold your breath for it, though. It'll probably be awhile)
