The shop has a panel that will stitch up into a children's book. (One of Sandra Magsamen's Huggable and Loveable book panels.) I happen to have a soft spot for children's books--especially those made of cloth. (see some of my previous book makes here and here)
I appliqued a matching eye patch on one page, made from KraftTex (a washable paper that feels and looks like leather). Oh, and can you see the french knots I added to the dog's ears? Black-on-black doesn't show up so well in photos...
I just used good old Perle cotton to stitch around some of the words pre-printed on the panel.
And finally, the doggie on the back cover was missing a tail! Can you imagine? So I stitched up a little felt tail. Much improved.
What do you think? Are you a fan of cloth books? Any favorite textural elements that the kids in your life really like?
