Felt Book

This community is SO great! I've been mainly lurking, but I am dying to get some feedback on my latest project.

I made a felt book for my daughter's first birthday. It took me about 2 months to do - 1-3 hours a night.




Book end detail

C for Cat | H for Honeybee

Thanks for looking :)

ETA: Thank You SO much for the amazing comments!

I also want to add, that this book is something that we ALWAYS look at it TOGETHER. I don't let her play with it alone because of the buttons and beads and the safety concern. They are definately fastened properly, but you can't ever take the chance. If you are going to use this as inspiration, please keep that in mind. (Thanks rocks_in_riots!)

Wow. That is totally impressive and really cute. Two months? That is way longer than I think I could work on something that long. :p

Thanks!
Man. It took FOREVER. I started it in the middle of June (her birthday was July 22) and I wasn't done till the middle of August.

I did watch TV while I made it, so i'm sure that if I had been totally focused it would have gone faster.

Thanks :) You definately see a LOT of amazingly cute things when you've had a baby, so it's hard to tell sometimes...
