Over a year ago, my Aunt Zona requested that I post a tutorial for how to make a color book like the ones I sewed for Ellie and her cousin Luke. I’m finally getting ready to sew one again so I’m planning to take pictures of the process as I sew. I will post the tutorial in several parts as it’s a multi-part (but not difficult) process to make one.
This project was the first major sewing project that I designed all on my own and so I’m really proud of it. I’m looking forward to making another one and have lots of ideas on how to fine-tune the design! I might even submit my finished project to the state fair this year (as inspired by my Aunt Zona)!
I’ll try to do a post every week or two and I’m anticipating that it will probably take me a couple months to get the entire tutorial posted.
If you think you might like to sew along with me and make one of these books, leave me a comment and let me know!
