Hand Sewn Sensory Book

This is a project that I have been working on for a while. It's a fabric, animal themed sensory baby book which I have sewn by hand. It has lots of different textures of fabrics and things to touch like buttons, beads and ribbon as well as bells in the whale, squeakers in the octopus and sheep and crinkly fabric in the butterfly wings. My daughter really enjoy playing with so I think it was worth the effort even it did take months to finish- I think that next time I'll have to pick a non sewing project!

Hand Painted Toy Box

I've been meaning to post this for ages. This is a toy box that I hand painted for my daughter. It has a woodland theme which is very similar to the wall mural that I did at the end of last year. I used emulsion paints and finished it off with a top coat of varnish.
