posting a few pictures of the presents i made for gabe and georgia. i appliqued their names on a 6" block with the machine.on the other side i scanned and printed some of their pictures from the past year on special paper and adhered it to some more 6" blocks.
then i sandwiched the layers with batting and stitched around the edge. i trimmed the edges with a zigzag and scallop scissors and added a grommet to each corner.
i chained the book together with a ballchain.
i know their moms and dads loved them--hope they do too!!
