Busy Book Pages 7, 8, 9 & 10

Ok, I was going to do these pages two at a time, but I’m going to be honest with you. I am so sick of writing about this busy book. I mean, I was so excited to show it to you at first, but since I can only manage to get out 1 or 2 posts a week, it’s just been dragging on. And I don’t want it hanging over my head anymore. I want to post about Christmas stuff now. So here are all the rest of the pages with instructions.

Enjoy!

Busy Book Pages 5 & 6

Hopefully you’re not getting sick of them yet. But this marks the halfway mark! So many pages…

I promise I’ll do a not-busy book related post this week, too, for those of you who couldn’t care less about busy books & how to make them.

I also have an update to make to the first page, since something broke & I had to do a little redesign. I’ll get that up as soon as I get to it. Which could very possibly not be until after Christmas at this rate.

Sigh.

ANYWAY. (more…)

Busy Book Pages 3 & 4

Does anyone else find it exceptionally difficult to get yourself going after a long holiday weekend? I sure do.

I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving weekend (well, those of you who are American. I hope the rest of you had a great regular weekend.) We had a lovely Thanksgiving, spent with my grandparents, aunts and sister.

Anyway, I’ve been in a Christmas tizzy the last few days, trying to get as much shopping done as possible before things get really busy. So forgive me if the posts get a little light around here.

I know I’m a little late in getting this post up. I’ve been meaning to do it for ages. In case you didn’t see them, you can check out the previous posts: Busy Book overview and Pages 1 & 2.

The pages I’m going to show you in detail today are the bird and the tree.

Busy Book Pages 1 & 2

Ok, so since I got a little bit of interest from readers to see more in-depth how I did Little Man’s Busy Book I decided to give you some more details, 2 pages at a time.

Here are the first two pages, the window and the squirrel.

I made stencils for almost all of these pages, the same way I do for the appliques on clothing. I also used a sewing machine for most everything, but it’s possible to do this without one. It will just take a lot more time.

Let’s start with the window, shall we?
