Making a Fabric Baby Book from Leftover Fabric!

Make a soft cloth fabric book for a baby. This one is on the theme of colours with loads of fun textures to touch and feel.


– Fabric scraps – fusible fleece – Heat n’ bond – Velcro – Sewing machine – Thread

Improv Style

Improv Style

My basic idea was to do an improv block of the same size – 6 x 6 – for each colour, add some fusible fleece, quilt the pages, add a cover and bind it all together.

Sorting my Scrap Fabrics

I started by deciding which colours I was going to put in my book and then sorting my scraps in to piles of those colours.

Making the Pages – Crumb Piecing

I decided to make each colour page out of a 6 x 6 square. I picked this size because it is big enough to work with and yet definitely small enough that a baby could hold on to it comfortably.

Quilting the Pages

To assemble the book the idea was to sew pages right sides together and flip over.

My Quilting Desings

My favourite was the random zig zag/mountain range kind of one that I did on the white page.
