Coptic Stitch Book

A book I have made from covers received in a swap . I have used coptic stitch as a binding it came out more or less right it works so thats ok
Coptic stitch always looks complicated I followed it one stitch at a time although some instructions are clearer than others. The signature covers are papers I used to stamp out some home made stamps that I will improve on as I use the book. I intend to use it as a doodle book.

Bog Baby


This is the Bog Baby I made from my own pattern from the book of the same name by Jeanne Willis. I made it for my granddaughter who is a teacher to take and show her class. Its a great book about a little bog baby found in a pond its a picture book with a story for the younger school child.
I drew the pattern out on paper not hard to do the feet and eyes were felt the wings lutrudor the tail plastic bag all bits found in my left over bag its only about six inches tall and fits in a margarine tub
