Baby Books

Ever since I downloaded these beautiful Baby Books of Ellen Maurer-Stroh, I wanted to embroider them - I just had to wait for the grandchildren to arrive! 

December 2016 with Aiden already turning 3 and Nathan nearly 1, I finally started embroidering them and it took about 3 months to complete with about 20 thread changes each.



I tried to have them laminated, but they were too thick.  I then just covered them with Decifix, added an eyelet in the corner and assemble with a ribbon.


I made up a packet, added their Dad's birthday present and then had it shipped over to the UK by boat as airmail suddenly went up by 33% putting it way over my budget!

The Baby Animal book contains these 12 animals:
