Because I'm a slacker (or rather, because I am too tired to blog after a day of chasing two boys around), I still have a few Christmas gifts I haven't blogged yet. One is the taggy fabric book I made for Baby Brother.
We're big Dr. Seuss fans in this house. As soon as I saw this Grinch panels fabric at Whipstitch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Sewn together with some batting and ribbons, it would be a wonderful little taggy fabric book for baby brother.
The fabric condenses the story of the Grinch into ten "pages."
To make the book, I sewed on the tags, and used fusible fleece to give it a little more "poof."
Not all the panels were the same size. So I sewed the narrower panels onto a larger piece of fabric to make the page work.
I found some Christmas tree fabric in my stash and used it to bind up the book.
The bulk of all the fabric and batting was more than my sewing machine could handle. But Suzanne at Hip Stitch set me up with a good machine in the sewing lounge to finish up this project.
Baby Brother approves :-)
