Quiet Book Commission
Finally! I've had this WIP sitting to the side of my craft table for about a month. I love the idea of making your own toys. This commissioned piece is for an etsy customer who wanted something organic and simple for her son to play with. Sebastian tested it out this morning in between laps around the kitchen island. I used simple, unbleached cotton and batting for the base. I included felt, chenille and various types of cotton fabric to add texture for curious fingers. I hand embroidered on almost every page and also bound the book with embroidery felt. I'm not sure I have the patience to whip up a batch for the shop because there is so much attention to detail involved. However, I am open to more commissioned pieces if you aren't in a hurry! Up next...a commissioned quilt! I'll keep you updated on it as it takes shape. Its so good to be back at the sewing machine. I missed her. I think she missed me, too.
