F is for Frog

Here are the pieces for the "f is for frog" page of Elijah's alphabet book (the floral background is just our ironing board). I've spent the last two weeks tracing all the shapes and letters onto fusible web; picking out and buying most of the fabric for the different pieces; washing and ironing fabric; fusing most of the fabric to the fusible web and cutting out most of the shapes and letters. I only have a few more letters to go and then I will begin the fun process of cutting out the fabric for the pages themselves and fusing everything into place. All this before the actual sewing begins!!! It's a lot of work, but I am thoroughly enjoying myself! It's such a cute pattern and I am even more determined now to have the book finished for Christmas morning.
