A Good Read or Good Eats?
I think she is more interested in tasting the book than reading it.I took a break from knitting this week and dusted off my sewing machine to make Melody a soft book. I got this Winnie the Pooh Soft Book kit from Jo-Ann Fabrics while I was in Boston. It even comes with the batting for inside the book. You just need to cut out the book panels, baste the batting to the pages, sew the book pages with the right sides together, flip it inside out, whip stitch the opening closed, then sew the book pages together.It took me all day to get this done, but that was in between changing diapers, bottle feeding and play times. For those of you without a baby, it would probably take you a few hours. I want to make more of these soft books. I know that they sell just the fabric panels online somewhere (have to do a search when I get the time) and it would be cheaper than buying the kits. I have plenty of batting in my closet.The best part is that it is machine washable. She tends to drool when she does tummy time.
