I'm GREEN with envy at your skill, creativity, patience, and productivity in a pinch! I'll be watching for your review of the bowls.

wow, you are ambitious! I too would have put my name on the back, because I wouldn't want them to forget who put all that work into them!!! Great job!

That is really great, I am sure that they will love them. I did something MUCH simpler (for those of us with less time but embroidery machines!) that you can see Click Here - scroll forward for several pictures. This was just embroidered on felt, using Cactus Punch storybook alphabet disc, then the edges serged and all the pages (spelling the baby's name) sewn together. Not as nice as yours, but his parents liked it a lot!

Those books are so cute!! What a nice Grandma you are to do such lovely gifts. Can I send my two over to you for Christmas? Wait...cancel that...they don't need any more spoiling.

Wow, how great! You did a fabulous job, and I can see you put a ton of work into them :o) I'm sure they will be treasured-the label on the back was a great idea. I would love to make one of these for my dd-but what a lot of work :O lol! Thanks for sharing!

Darling books!! You did a superb, loving job. Reminds me of the alphabet quilt I have *almost* done, ending in X-Y-Zachary, my oldest gs who is, uhm, 10 now. . .

Leslie, I used cotton twill and it was heavy enough I did not have to interface. The pattern instructions say to use stabilizer while stitching the letters, etc. but since I used the Heat n Bond, I opted to skip the stabilizer and I never needed it.

Peg, that is *precious*! Just the inspiration I needed to get back to work on the Sew Baby Activity books I've started. What fabric did you use for your inside pages? Did you interface them?
