It's been about a year in the making, but it's FINALLY done!! I made a quiet time activity book of Bible stories for Grayson to keep him busy/quiet during church. I'm quite proud of how it turned out!! I made the whole thing up myself -- no patterns at all -- just my own ideas, and my own free-handing the shapes. My wonderful mother took pity on me and finally finished it for me -- it's been sitting by her sewing machine for months -- just loose pages, waiting for me to get time to sew it together, which never happened. Thank you, Mom! :) Anyway, here are some pictures of the book:
Adam and Eve: the apples, flowers, and leaves are velcroed on, so you match which goes where.
Moses: the ten commandments -- numbers have snaps on them, so you snap them into place in order. The other side is Moses parting the Red Sea -- you just open both sides of the 'sea' to find Moses.
Joseph: his 'coat of many colors' buttons on/off
Jonah: hides inside the whale's mouth
Daniel and the Lion's Den: the lion's mouth zips shut (for when the angel "shut the mouths" of the lions)
David and Goliath: there's a stone on a ribbon that slides from Daniel's sling up to Goliath's forehead
Noah's Ark: you match the animals with their pair (one is glued on, and the pair velcroes next to it); and the dove pulls out of the pocket with a rainbow ribbon.
I LOVE this fabric we found for the cover! It has all the bible stories on it in fun cartoon drawings!
I still need to make some kind of title for the front, but I had to show it off now :D So fun!!
You are so amazingly creative. I am sure that Gray is going to love that for ever and ever.
Are you kidding me??? I can't believe you made that, well I can cause its you, but it is wonderful! Great job you are the best mommy ever!!!
That is fantastic! I would say that you should start selling them, but it looks like WAY too much work to sell. Hmmm, maybe you should look into having them mass produced.
Darling darling darling Manth. So fun it's done! Gray and future kids will just LOVE it. What a treasure!
YAY for Mantha ! IT is absolutely draling - and so very creative without a pattern. It was fun to help - - - Gray will love it :)
That is seriously so much fun and so creative! I never would have come up w/ the dove and the rainbow ribbon. Such a neat idea!
I think you have a bit to much time on your hands... need to think about adding a baby girl to the clan. Then you will have a reason to do cute girly stuff too.
