Santa Soft Book

My daughter and I found this at the bottom of a bag of fabric. I remember buying it about 17 years ago, when she was 3, and then promptly losing it. I think I need an intervention on fabric hoarding...LOL!

I ironed it for about an hour and cut it out.

I found some batting scraps that were the perfect size and pinned it up.

I just did a quick stitch around the pictures and then the outside edge of  the pages. DD is so in love with the Rag Quilt texture, she wanted me to leave the page edges open.

Sew it together and square up the pages and...

Ta Da! 

It's cute under the tree and she says it is going in her cedar chest after Christmas.
She is very good at reminding me that it is the littlest things that can mean the most.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

That is so sweet! Gives me hope that I will use all my fabric someday! I know that meant a lot to your daughter.

How sweet! I would have thought you'd missed the window of opportunity for that gift be at least 10 years, but she's treasuring it in her chest! What do you want to bet that book will be well loved by your grandchild one day?!
