aDORable. Love love love it. When somebody learns to read by looking at those pages, she'll remember the pictures and the textures her whole life. Beautiful!


That is so, so beautiful! I must check out that book. It looks fabulous!

All I can say is "wow!" I often wish my children were just coming to me now so I could use your ideas and inspiration for them. And then I see something like this and it blows me away (and that's when I say "phew!"--as in, I don't think I could ever match the cuteness or craftsmanship!). You are amazing.

This book is SO ADORABLE! I am completely in love with it and now aspire to make one for my future children. In reality I'm quite aware that it would take a non-trivial amount of time to make though! Really beautiful color choices and shapes. :)


I love this! What a treasured heirloom you have created! So very sweet...:)

Have a happy Friday!



LOVE that book. Your little girl is going to be so blessed!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Sending happy thoughts your way,


What can I say? Cutest thing ever!!! You are such a talent. Thanks for the daily inspiration.

I imagine you reading this aloud to a tiny girl in your lap and I get choked up just thinking about it.

There is so much love on those pages.


LOVE THIS...there you go...inspiring me again.


Eeee! This is so, so precious, Alicia! Such incredible handwork you do, my friend! You know what? Finn "woofed" like a dog for the first time when we were reading this book together. He just went "woof" and I about fell to the floor. I'm sure your perfect version of Clover will elicit the same response one day from your little lady!


This is so, so sweet. Just lovely.


I absolutely LOVE this. Very nice book. Just gorgeous!


Beautiful and thoughtful. I adore it!


Look at all the wonderful skills that you and Andy will pass down to your daughter. Really a beautiful book.

Lucky little girl. The book is beautiful and filled with love.


Oh my gosh, that is the sweetest thing I have ever seen!

How beautiful, Alicia. All the details are so pretty - I like the chain stitch on the rug on the "baby" page. It gives it the feel of a braided rug.

WHAT an adorable book! Lucky little baby! :D


ack, you did such a great job! every page is just perfect! makes me want to throw up my hands and smile too :)


What a gorgeous book! I can't get over how beautiful it is!

Oh my gosh! Your little Clover picture is the cutest thing ever! I love the whole book--main images and fabric backgrounds too!


This is absolutely beautiful, Alicia.
Your lucky baby is going to have so many wonderful things to look at and
to wear. She will be fortunate indeed!

Melissa Crowe

Oh, my goodness--I squealed with glee when I realized you'd made my book for your to-be-baby! You've done a beautiful job, and I love it with the hem turned under on the fabrics. And the Clover-esque doggy? TOO GOOD.



This little book is so sweet, and I love the pup page! Your little one is going to have lots of precious treasures to hold onto as she grows. :)

That is the most beautiful craft project I have seen for some time. Thanks for sharing it. Like you I am a bit of a couch-potato crafter which is why I favour knitting and hand-sewing over the machine!

When I Take Pictures

  • I take pictures every day

    Since August of 2011 I've been using a Canon EOS 60D with an EF 18-200mm kit lens and an EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens.
