I thought I’d share with you my favorite baby gift ever.
We have some good friends who have given us these darling felt patch photo albums for each one of our children. They have become so special to us, and I was super excited the other day when a box arrived on our doorstep. I smiled as soon as I saw the return address- knowing there would be another sweet book for our little lamb, Corinne.
The patch is made from hand-dyed wool felt, and the book is covered in canvas. It’s quality. The books come from here. I urge you to visit Kata’s site and take a look at all she offers… so inspiring (well, to me anyway… i seriously love felt!).
Here is Grant’s- I just finished putting photos in his book a few weeks ago- just in time for his 2nd birthday (go me!).
And Ellery’s. I wrote a little something under each photo in her book, almost so it would read like a story.
She loves to find it on the bookshelf and have us look at it with her. Often. 🙂
And check this out- no packing peanuts here! These felt scraps kept my little ones busy for a solid 20 minutes.
So, keep these cute books in mind if you know a special little one is coming!
OR… Get crafty!
You can buy Kata Golda’s book, Hand-Stitched Felt and learn how to make tons of cute things. I’ve made the finger puppets (shown above) twice, and they were so fun to make and personalize for each baby.
My first experience with sewing ANYTHING was when I made things from this book. Learning to hand-stitch inspired me to learn how to use a sewing machine… but looking back at these books, I’m getting the itch to sit on the couch and work a new project from this book- you know, once things get settled in around here.
