Belated handmade b-day present

I made this sweet little baby book from Sew Liberated (I love this book! So many more projects I want to make! And no, it’s not all about appliqué) for sprout’s birthday. It was fairly easy to make, even by someone who’s last attempt at embroidery was in 8th grade!!! However, it was rather time-consuming and I miscalculated how long it would take me… I finished it this weekend and it’s been a hit with Alex 🙂

I changed the book slightly to make it bilingual Portuguese/English (I figured French would be a bit much!!!), so the title is different and the placement of the words throughout is different as well.

All in all I’m quite happy with it, despite my laziness kicking in with the finishing stitches… And I still want to print a little message for Alex on fabric (I don’t think I can stand the thought of embroidering the whole message!!) and attaching it to the back cover.
