Hold those books!

My Great new friend Clare wanted to get an extra present for a shower that she was hosting in the city.  Since the mom to be is a city dweller, she wanted a gift that was going to both nice for a baby room but still modern.  We looked through a few books and were instantly struck by a set of book ends by Lotta Jandsotter.  Being the creative soul that she is, Clare adapted the pattern a bit and came up with a sets of book ends that would brighten up any nursery.

She started by figuring out the body shape and size and picking out her fabric and felt combination.  Love the pink and yellow with the teal.

To get the proper weight for the book ends she put in a muslin bag filled with stones and hand sewed the bottoms

To finish off the literal pair got a pair of fancy felt bows.
