Baby Book completed !
Baby Book roughly 10"x11" Fabric and Lace Covered
At last its completed ,I just need to reinforce the corners,I,m not quite sure how yet,I may dip them in Beeswax or UTEE.
The images are Fabric transfered ones including the text at the top .The B for Baby is padded with wadding that was NOT easy lol,could have been better.The heart is padded with a brad in centre.each piece I did on seperate squares or oblongs,then stitched onto the base of dye'd fabric laid onto felt.
Such a lot of work like dying fabrics all that sewing ! I think the hardest job was putting it all together and wondering if it looks like a Baby Book haha,But you will be the judge of that hopefully.I might even change the tags,not to sure about them,could have been perhaps in a paler colour,i painted and stamped them,its finding the right stamps and baby stuff in my stash,without going out buying lots.
The book is a new one with all the usual stuff inside like places to put photos and momento's of Baby ,also pages can be added........Aimee my granddaughters baby is due beginning of July,we dont know if its a boy or girl yet,so I tried to keep away from pinks and blues.
I had to alter the whole of the front and back covers,by painting with acrylic in bronze metalic, then covering with papers, the edge where the ribbon is was a dark blue so i used a gold Kyrlon pen on that and put new ivory ribbon in.
I hope Aimee will like it !
