I know this isn't made by me but I love it and am so proud I had to share it!!!!
This is the bookmark my gorgeous little boy made for his nannie today, he was looking through one of his 'little boy making books' as he calls it, (it is actually my yellowmoon book but it is for little people and where most of his crafty bits come from!!!) and he saw a bookmark and decided he wanted to make it for nannie, I didn't have any bookmarks ( am a bad mummy!!!!) so I cut him a bit of white material. He made some little snips in the bottom to make it lok like the one in the book and I helped him to sort out the letters for 'nannie' (he is only 4 and doesn't know all his letters yet and the ones he does know are lowercase, whereas these stickers were uppercase!!!) I love the way he placed then down the bookmark, proud mummy moment as I thought he placed them really well. Then I gave him his puffy glitter fabric paints and he decorated around the letters (another proud mummy moment as he was so cute and careful with his little tongue popping out the side of his mouth and he didn't want to get paint on the letters,awwwww...!!!)
Thankyou for popping in for a peek,I will tell Little Mo you looked!!!xxxx

This week I have been desperately trying to rid myself of my 'use my new bind-it-all' fear!!!! This happens to me with anything new!! I get it, open the box, get excited, read the instructions and then put it away again!!!!! lol !!!! i even did it withmy baby bug and my big E!!!
Anyway at the weekend I decided I needed to get the bind-it-all out and have a go so I went on a blog womble and found vicki's tutorial for the one sheet pocket book, here's the link:
It was lovely to follow and here is my book!!!! It is a little bit naked as I haven't had time to fill it in or decorate it too much yet,just a little adhesive lace and circle folded in half for the front and back so far and a bit of inking, I quickly slipped a little tag in there to show the pockets but I will post another few pictures when I have done a bit more to it.
I just want to thank vicki for sharing this fab tutorial, I love it and will be making lots more!!!!!
