In an effort to regain my creative mojo and get back into book making I have started a cloth book for Frances. It is becoming a fun project, thinking of ways to fill each folio and trying to make it very Jessica (perhaps a few donuts in there somewhere) while keeping Frances engrossed in every page.
It has been quite some time since I have made any books and I will have to jog my memory when it comes to sewing the sections. I am sure once I get going it will all come back to me. I haven’t decided on a binding yet but once the contents are complete I will have a better idea.
Frances loves books. She squeals with delight when she sees me coming with a stack. Mostly we look at cardboard books as she gets to excited and tears the paper in regular books. I think she gets a little frustrated with books though. It is hard for her to turn the pages by herself and the pages seem so flat. (They don’t do anything) So I am hoping that when her mother finishes this project she will feel good about turning, looking, feeling and tasting. She is such a tactile little one and I just love that about her!!
