Quiet Book.

I am so excited to finally share this project. I have been working on this on and off for the past few months and here it is! Porter's Quiet Book. It was so fun to create each page and add all the little details. Almost every page has a special touch of hand embroidery and I think the rocket ship page is especial wonderful. I am getting very excited to give my little man this handmade gift!

2. Robot {stretchy arms}
3. Rocket Ship {slides}

6. Fish bowl {snaps}
7. Counting Carrots
8. Stoplight {velcro}

You did a fantastic job! I did a quiet book as an exchange once. My page rocked! But it was more like Katie's recent exchange where everyone else's sucked and in some cases wasn't even the right size! Needless to say I never put it together. SAD.

This is so clever and cute and well executed! He'll love it! What a good mommy you are!

Your blog looks nice, I like the cleanness and simplicity of it.

I'm sure you could fit a "share" or "connect" button with your design.
Might want to check out some SEO tips in the process.

Also, talk to me if you'd like to move your blog to WordPress. I could host it for you for free and I have a few skins you could use for free :)

Esther,
This is UH-MAZING!! I'm seriously impressed (and shamed by the fact that I've sewn for years and could never do this). You've got skills girl!
