Duct Tape Wallet

Wanna make something for your 13-year-old cousin's birthday? And he's a boy? about a duct tape wallet? Just add a little bit of cash inside and it makes the perfect gift for a teenage boy (or even adults)!

I love this b/c it's so different than anything I usually make. My cousin LOVED it and it was easy to make. Just search on You Tube and you will find lots of tutorials. Happy taping!

Final Quiet Book Pages, for now

All I have left to do is finish the cover! I'm so excited, but I am saving the quiet book for a Christmas present. Who knows, I may not finish the cover until Christmas, anyway.

Clock Page

I am so mad about this page. It is definitely my least favorite. The button is sewn on too tightly, so the felt hands don't move easily. I'm going to have to do something about it, but it's going to be difficult b/c I already sewed the page together.

Shoe Page

I love how this page looks, but I know I should have reinforced the holes for the laces better. Maybe with metal grommets? I used interfacing on the back, but I still think the felt will tear. Ahhh! Oh well. I have gotten a little lazy here at the end.

I got the idea for the shoe page here.
