Quiet Book for Bethany WIP
Shapes and colours
Build a cat. I used one of my Spoonflower swatches for the background.
Jigsaw. Bethany is fascinated with their dog Molly.
The most problematic page so far. My plan was to make a removable unicorn but I messed up the plastic in the middle and the felt got spoilt. I didn't have enough of that colour to try again so I made a smaller version and stitched it to the page. I accidently stitched it to the wrong side of the fabric - doh. I wish I had gone with the darker purple for the mane and tail or lighter pink for the body [which I didn't have]
Vintage photo altered with a couple of doodle faces I drew on my tablet.
I have a few Apps on my android tablet, I think I used Sketchbook Pro for these.

Sensory - Touch
The bear has a two way sequin tummy. He can also be removed from the page to play with. Fixed on with velcro.
I used t-shirt transfer paper on white fabric. The transfer paper stops the fabric fraying so I used it for the flaps and the pictures underneath.
I couldn't get a photo showing all the raised flaps as they just fell back down again.
I sewed velcro on the loose crayons to attach them on top of the fixed crayons.
Maybe I should have put strings on them so that they don't get lost.
Different textures to touch.

All digital work this week. I have been busy doing the quiet book but I don't have photos to show you.

Sewing and Upcycling
I made this dress for my 2 year old Granddaughter out of old jeans and buttons. For the lining I used a new sheet left over from a past project.
I was messing about on my tablet using the Corel App for these.
Quiet Book WIP
I've started a new project of a quiet book for my other Granddaughter. Hope to have it done before Christmas. The first page I have started is all about colours. I used t-shirt transfer paper for this. One set of pencils needs cutting out and I need to add some sort of fastening and was thinking of velcro but I'm not sure where I would put it without it spoiling the look.
I've almost finished the cup book project but don't have photos yet.

I decided to combine some paintings I did earlier in the year with some gelli prints also done previously. I did this digitally with photos rather than on the actual paintings.
