Progress update – Milan’s quiet book, the pages.

I just couldn’t stay away, could I? No , I didn’t want to lose my thoughts on how things were going and I’m really getting into this, so I figured why not πŸ™‚ Also,Β I’m not waiting until I’m sad and depressed in the hospital to write up posts and depress you too πŸ˜›

Ok, so here goes.

The cover, hand sewn

I did not want to be overly ambitious so I decided the pages of the book would spell out Milan’s name and I could go nuts with what I put in there. No templates used, I just drew out a simple outer body shape for the monkeys.

I then cut out little pieces for the bellies, ears and face.

I changed my mind about the first draft almost immediately. The bugs would be too big. Back to the drawing board then :).

Better :) I didnt have any black felt for the body, so I used some of the grey I still had and some tulle to darken it up. I like the result. Very soft wings :)

Last night I got the idea to make some ID to go with the aeroplane page because I didnt want to just have a bunch of planes on ribbons.
