In the interests of fairness between siblings, I have been making my niece, Emilia a felt book for her first birthday.
This one was quite tough to make – it would appear to be surprisingly difficult to think of things that begin with certain letters that are appropriate for this kind of thing and that make the right sound phonetically – especially as Emilia’s sister Alice already has her own book, so I couldn’t double up on any of the ideas!
This book has an animal theme, which I quite like as it’s less random than it’s predecessors:
Have a look at the rest of the pages after the jump…
I put plastic from old carrier bags in the covers so they sound all crinkly when you move them.
We are still very much short of new baby names over here – but sewing up this book has given me a lot of time to ponder over the fact that it might be easier in the long run to think of a name with only a few letters… 🙂
