I made this book in 1985 for my daughter, Emily, when she was a baby. The pattern was complex, with about a million little pieces and lots of transfers. Each page has at least one (and sometimes four) colored fabric frames surrounding a letter and picture. It involves lots of machine applique — something I used to do a lot back then, but don’t anymore. The construction of the book is interesting — I actually had to follow the directions carefully, which I am generally not inclined to do. Many of the pages have little activities for toddlers (zipper, button, snap, tie, etc.) and some of these ideas work better than others. It’s a sturdy little book, and it has held up well over the years.
I have a new, uncut copy of this pattern. If someone would like to make this little book, just leave a message for me in Comments.
