Froggy Fun

I finished my first fabric journal. I know these pictures could be better but if I didn't take something as soon as it was completed, I may not get them taken! This process was a lot of fun & I have learnt a lot of things that I will NOT do on the next one! I don't like the edges, in future I will probably have them totally finished. I had originally tried doing a blanket stitch around the edge but it was very hard on the fingers. Maybe if I had a different type of batting it would be different. But the whole thing is a learning process & I'm enjoying it.

The idea for a frog book came when I walked into a new fabric store & there sitting on the floor was the most incredible fun eye fabric, on closer inspection, they were frogs! It was so fun & cute that I couldn't resist.

"Froggy Fun"

"Where is the food?"

This page has little bugs flying around :)
Where is the party?
This may be hard to read but the beads on the left spell "Party Time"

This says "Dinner time" and I tried to embroider what looked like grubs. The picture of the frog on the right is a photo of the frog that sits in my Dad's backyard. He actually grows grubs to feed it!

This says "Leap Frog"

This has beads spelling out the word "Ribbit" and my signature and date on the right.

Don't you just love the eyes! :)

Really cute book. My grandkids would love it. I have some of that bright colored frog fabric you used on the bug pages. I planned to make a summer outfit out of it but didn't buy quite enough plus I'm not sure I'm quite brave enough to wear it! It looks great here.
