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!!
