I’m finding this really hard to believe, but my little guy turns one in less than a week. That kind of snuck up on me. But at least I managed to get a start on his gift with enough time that I didn’t have to scramble to get it done. And it was nearly free to make.
Thanks to having an older sister who was the first grandchild on both sides of the family, little dude has never experienced a shortage of toys. It’s pretty nice, but it makes thinking of gifts really hard. Since babies can never have enough things to chew on and touch, I decided to make him a new cloth book. I was inspired by ones I had seen on the internet that were assembled scraps to create a rainbow of pages. So I took the idea and ran. I raided my stash and pulled all the coolest stuff in a rainbow of colors. From corduroy and velvet to embroidery and lace, this book has a decent variety of fun things for him to touch.
Since it’s veeeery late, time to quit yakking and share some pics!
And here is the finished product! Oh, I love babies. I can share this gift with the entire world, and there is no way it will spoil it for him.
