April, May, June Sewing: Color Books – Three of Them!

So I’ve been posting color book tutorial posts but hiding the fact that I’ve been sewing not one or two but THREE color books!  Three of my nieces turned two (or will be two soon) in the past year and so usually, I would have made these for them for this past Christmas.  We were otherwise occupied in December however so here we are in June!

The front covers:

066 (800x800) 067 (800x800)

Making three color books turned out to be beneficial for writing the tutorial because I was able to fine tune my process and take any missing pictures while sewing the other books.

068 (800x533)

069 (800x534)I love how they look, all stacked up!

Here’s the inside of one of the books:

070 (800x534) 071 (800x534) 072 (800x533) 073 (800x533) 074 (800x535)And the “Author” page:

076 (800x800)This was indeed a labor of love and it will probably be awhile before I can make myself sew another color book!  🙂  I hope those three little girls love having these books as much as I loved making them for them!

Auntie Laura loves you, Violet, Clara, and Maria!

    You could sell them Laura! A little cottage industry!

      Thank you Jana! I’ve thought about it but they take me so many hours to make that I’d have to charge an outrageous price (which no one would probably be willing to pay) in order to make it worth my while. I’m still trying to figure out the perfect things to sew for selling!
