Warning, Warning.....

Just a little warning this is a long post..
So you might want to get comfy..



Well I did it..  I finally finished this sweet little book for
my sweet Grandson to be..




 My little book is made out of Lunch sacks..
Sewed right down the middle..




So at all the opening I put a little slide out
so you could add more photos..




 Decorated up all the pages..






 With yummy baby blue design paper and card stock.










I used up a whole lot of ribbon & lace and buttons..





Lots of places to put cute little photos of Myles 
when he gets here..





 What would a baby book be without lots of
 cute little quotes.




 Let me tell you my sewing machine got quite the work out..
 I ran out of my white thread while making this little project..




 I didn't show you all the pages. But there was a total of
 18 pages. Not counting the cover.




 This is my forth Paper bag mini album.
 All the others I made before I started blogging.

 


So there you have it.
My little book for Myles.
I can't wait till my daughter sees it.




Thanks for popping in and taking a look..
Maybe this will inspire you to make your own book
out of lunch sacks...

Hugs, Linda

This is absolutely wonderful - the concept and the reality - I just love polka dots and gingham so you had me immediately. You have done some gorgeous work here, Linda! I would love to try something like this - how do you bind it all together? Maybe you could add on to your post to show us that? Thanks so much for sharing!
