This week for fat quarter friday I wanted to share with you a little fabric scrapbook that we just put together for Grammy for Valentine’s Day. I love this little book and it was so fun to put together with the kiddo’s. I wanted to make the book extra special for Grammy so I had my little guy draw some hearts, x’s and o’s and write Grammy’s name. Then I traced his little letters and objects onto some minky fabric and sewed them into the fabric. I also had the kiddo’s do a little finger painting and added each of their hand prints to the book. These little books will make great gifts and you can customize them any way you want and for whoever you want. Get creative with them and embellish away!

*embellishments (buttons, ric rac, ribbon, fabric scraps)
*iron-on stabilizer or flannel
Cut the following:
*If you have a teflon foot for your machine you may want to switch to it. It will make sewing over the plastic easier.*
Sew around the plastic.
