For my eight-month-old niece, B, I made a texture book for her to play with and chew on. I knew that she is teething and I thought she would like a book that she can really sink her teeth (or her gums) into. I took my ideas from THIS blog found via Pinterest. The lovely shapes on the centre page were made by my friend who is coaching me as I make a quilt from the fabric my grandmother used to make outfits for us when we were younger (look for a post on that in the next couple months). She has a surger machine and finished off the edges of the fabric using it.
