Over a year ago Jillian’s mom gave me clothing to make Jilly a soft book. I made her a color quiet book awhile back. So after traveling down different roads, changing directions, ripping out, and serging, I finally finished it! I tried to incorporate every piece Martha gave me, but the shoes just didn’t make it. I did use her pink shoelace though.
The embroidery was from a jumper I found at a local thrift store. All of the other clothing was Jillian’s. The pages are made of fabric I dyed specifically for this book. Instead of embroidering words for this book, I printed them out on fabric.
This first page is about snaps. She can snap and unsnap her pants.
This next page is about zippers. She can zip and unzip her dress.
This page spread is about buttons. On the opposite side she can button her sweet dress.
It’s been fun making this even thought I changed my mind so many times! Today I give it to her. Yipee!
