At the Quilting Fair this month I fell in love with this cute little pattern from Kids Quilts called Crinkly Critters.
Its a soft cloth book.
I thought this would make a lovely little first Christmas gift for River. The snail page has some florist cellophane inside to make a crinkly sound as River holds it.
Also the dragonfly has some cellophane in it as well.
I machine appliqued the animals.
Used 2 threads of black DMC for the hand stitching. Also the fabrics I used was Shadow Play by Maywood.
I changed a couple of things, to give it my own little stamp on the book.
