My children are all grown up now, but I remember fondly how many hours we spent reading books. Being a book lover, I started them early, reading to them when they were tiny babies. As soon as our son was able to grasp things with his chubby little hands, he was putting them in his mouth . . . and that included his books. Looking back, it’s a shame we didn’t have any cloth books back then. He would have been “reading and chewing” constantly.
A few years ago, the kind folks at Quilt Girls sent me a darling panel and I made my first cloth book. It’s an easy project and a wonderful gift to give. Someday when I have grandchildren, I imagine myself sewing cloth books until I run out of thread!
Would you like to try your hand at making a cloth book? I have two super cute cloth book panels to give away, courtesy of Quilt Girls!
This cheerful fabric features inspirations messages on each page.
Everyone is on the move in this counting book . . . by car, by scooter and even by hot air balloon!
