Elisabeth´s book

By spotogspindel | April 14, 2014


Elisabeth is ny now 2 months old niece, and Sunday is her christening. Like for all my other nieces and nephews, I am making her a “Welcome-to-life!”-book. Everyone in the immediate family contributes in filling it with wishes and thoughts.


The cover is a freestyle machine-embroidered appliquéd girly-girl sewn onto leather. Hopefully it will be both strong and sturdy and can take years of reading. The face is partly sewn, partly painted on with textile markers.


So now that I´ve made the book itself, it´s just all the writing left :-). Everyone gets a page with a photo and a little presentation.
