A Handmade Holiday 2013 — Printed Activity Book


If you have little ones in your life, the holidays are particularly special. I’ve found that it’s often more exciting to make things for the wee ones, even when they are really too little to really appreciate the time that went into each tiny little gift. In the past few months, we’ve added three new wee ones to the Pellon® family, so we’ll be paying extra close attention to all of the kiddie tutorials this year!

This adorable little Printed Activity Book tutorial by Heather “Feather” Paulsen of Feather’s Flights may be better for a toddler than an infant, but I’m all for planning ahead;). She used our 808 Craft-Fuse® to construct a custom book to keep her very own wee ones curious, happy and occupied. Which images would you use for the littles in your life?

heatherpaulsenHeather got interested in sewing in high school, but says she didn’t know what she was doing. She studied clothing construction in college while working at a tailor shop, and she combines the two different perspectives while she sews. Heather loves sewing for her son, her husband, and herself.
