This first page is one I've been especially excited to make. I was originally going to do a straight forward weaving page with just two pages of felt, but when I saw this book I knew I wanted to do a pie page.
I liked how it turned out! My mom has had this apple fabric for YEARS and I knew it would work perfectly. I like it when a page turns out AND is cheap! Win-win. Baby also wins because he will be a pro at doing a lattice topped pies. Mmm, flower and apple pie.
I also knew I wanted to do a page for tying bows, for future shoelace practice. What I didn't want to do was make a page with a shoe on it and grommets and everything for the shoelace. I can't explain this, I just didn't want to do it. So I went simple:
Three times the practice, almost no work for me to make. Now, you might be wondering where the holes are going to go to put this in the actual book. I wondered this myself--after I finished. So...we'll see what happens.
