Very cute. I love it. It looks beautiful.

Julie Broom

This is absolutely delightful. I'm sure it will become a real family treasure. Great post. :-)


That is beautiful! I like hand sewing and keep looking at this book. Someday I'll get it. Have a great weekend!


LOVE it.....The colors...the designs....everything. What a beautiful book for your soon to be baby. And it will be cherished for years to come. So happy for you!


It does look a time-consuming project but look at the results!!! The entire thing is absolutely perfect and just as charming as charming could ever be!....Oh, and the Puppers...she looks just like Clover Meadow!


Wow.. what a beautiful little baby book! Inspiring!


so adorable!!! i have been wanting to make a baby book - i just need to buy some felt:


Oh that is a lovely,lovely project


That is such a special project bound to become a keep forever heirloom. Wonderful job, little mama!

It's only fitting that your baby's first book should be hand made, and by her mother no less. I hope you remembered to stitch your signature or maybe the word "Mama" on the back. Or maybe a small dedication like "For (insert her name) from Mama, with Love" then add her date of birth once you know it. Your felt book is so precious it makes want to swoon.


That is so cute. Love the fabrics you used in the background on each page!


I agree with Gabi, make sure you sign it! It will be such a treasure for her when she grows up.


Your book is so cute that I almost want to have another baby, learn to sew, learn to applique, figure out what the heck a "blind" stitch means, etc. etc.


...whoops! I mean "invisible hem" stitch.

Julie Smith

Absolutely beautiful. I love every stitch. xoxo


Oh! That is too cute. Little clover. Divine.


I love your book so much! I am a great admirer of Melissa Crowe, too.


Oh that is so lovely, what a great thing to do. This is going to be one very lucky baby! I think the picture of Clover has to be my fave.
Happy weekend.

Oh my God! This little book is gorgeous :) I love every page, specially the "Clover's page", so nice!

Nancy Cook

Very well done. Love all that handstitching done with love. (And love the puppers and the kitterses in there too!)

Laura A.

Exquisite! It makes me so happy to see that. May it be handed down and loved by your future great grandchildren and their corgis.


I LOVE the baby's first book! It's absolutely gorgeous. xxx


I always wanted to make one of those! I love your patterned fabric accents.


That is absolutely adorable. What a wonderful job you did on it!
In other news, I thought of a quirky TV series that I really liked back in the 90s. Northern Exposure. You might like it!
