Here is my first post of crafty fantastic-ness! This is a sticker album I recently finished. It started out as a birthday present for a friend's child but after I got about half-way done I realized it was not age-appropriate for a five-year old. Lucky for me she has a three-year old that it will be perfect for at Christmas!! Yippy! All is not lost!
So as a first attempt and never having made one of these before I definitely learned things I will do differently for the next one. But all in all its pretty nifty. Here is the breakdown (briefly) of how I did it:
I found pictures on the internet of cartoonish scenery; specifically plain ones with no characters in them. Printed two scenes to a page, cut them out, put two pics back to back and then laminated them. Those laminated sheets were sewn in between two pages of felt and then cut away windows with pinking shears. I did a lot of crazy topstitching with the sewing machine but I blanket stitched the front and back covers with embroidery thread. That's about it!
