Book Of Love

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.

Yay, you finished, it didn't seem to take you too long. The book is just lovely, I'm sure it will be getting a lot of use before too long.
