In case you missed it:

Here it is, the end of the fabric book!  For pages 9 & 10 the shapes were attached to the pages using iron on adhesive, and the eye details and words were done in puffy paint.

Starfish - page 9

I stitched 3 buttons on this page to look like bubbles, and to give a different texture.

Knit mug koozie!

I just love knitting projects that you can complete in a short time & don't require too much thought.  (as opposed to the baby blanket I have been working on for.... YEARS haha, that's another story) Last year I was really into making these while watching TV at night.  They go pretty quick!

This was my first time doing a cable stitch, and it was not as scary as I thought it would be :)

Sea themed Fabric book! (pg 7 & 8)

In case you missed it:
Here are pages 7 & 8!  (next week I will post the final 2 pages, so be sure to come back to check it out!)
Page 7 - the Seahorse
Sea horse - sea themed fabric book
 The scrap fabrics I used on the seahorse were from: this spring jacket, and this pirate costume skirt, and the other fabric is from a pair of pajama pants I made.
All of the shapes making up the sea horse were attached to each other and then to the page with iron on adhesive.
Page 8 - the Stingray

This gray material has gotten a lot of use!  I can't remember how many yards of it I bought but I made this fleece pullover, this fleece jacket and this cat bed.  I still have a lot of scraps from this fabric left, so I imagine you will see it pop up again :)
The flannel material used to make the pages was leftover fabric from this cut chenille blanket

Cut Chenille Blanket

I absolutely love cut chenille blankets!

They are so much fun, so whenever I forget just how long they take to make (a loooooong time), I start another one haha.  After making a couple of these, I gave in and purchased an Olfa Chenille Cutter, and I must say... It is awesome. If only I'd have gotten one sooner :)
For this blanket, I chose to do a decorative stitch in the shape of circles to attach the binding.
I have stacks of fabric set aside to make a couple more of these, maybe over my winter break I'll do another one!
**Check out the fun use of my leftover fabric from this blanket as the cover of this Fabric texture book**
