Baby cloth book - To the circus


I was so happy when today the fabric for making a baby cloth book was delivered. I designed this for a spoonflower contest. If you like you can still vote for it!
I'll soon will make the bib and plushie too, unfortunately i'm too busy at the moment for that.

And if your interested; i have 3 of these yards in stock, ready to ship :D

I immediately started sewing :) It's very simple to make. Here are some pics on how to make it!
 
Cutting the fabric

6 pieces of fabric
I ironed on some fusible fleece (pellon 987F) on the back of the fabric on 3 pieces

The fusible fleece was a little smaller; so the edges of the book will not become to thick
Sew around and leave a little space open to turn the fabric
Cut the corners of the seam

Turn the fabric

Optional; add a ribbon

Three pieces are ready to become a book...

Sew the pieces to each other...it's a real book now!!!

Close the gaps by sewing with needle and thread


Tadaaaa...here it is...we're off to the circus!

Furoshiki and free gift tags!




 I designed some gift tags matching the christmascards and fabric with the vintage christmasballs and snowman. You can download it for free here or at my flickr and use it for your presents.
The tags are only for personal use!

These presents are being wraped with a square piece of fabric called Furoshiki. Furoshiki is originating from Japanese culture and it's a eco-friendly way to wrap your christmaspresents! There are all kinds of knots to wrap your presents. You can even fold a bag or clothing :)

The fabric is also available at Spoonflower. A fat quarter is perfect to make a furoshiki of 45 x 45 cm.
Cut the fabric, make a small seam an wrap your presents like this!

The fabric and tags match with the christmas cards. Which you can find in my shop or etsy.
