Gift Idea: Fabric I Spy Book

I feel like I'm swimming in fabric remnants from various sewing projects. I've searched Pinterest for ideas of what to do with them. One idea shared on Skip To My Lou was to create a Fabric I Spy Book. Following the tutorial, I created this book for Dylan with a mix of solid and pieced fabric squares:

Pages 1-2
Pages 3-4
Pages 5-6
Pages 7-8
Pages 9-10
I am pleased with how it turned out, but, I confess, if I make another, I might try changing it up a bit to relocate the closure tab to the far side of the fabric square adjacent to the cover. This way all the pages could be folded to the inside and a spine created. Following the tutorial, my book ended up with "spine" side being open so it does not remain fully closed when fastened.

Supplies: fabric remnants; freezer paper; thread; velcro.


  1. Sarah,
    As I was looking at this adorable book idea, I recognized some of the fabrics in it that are some that we carried at Wish Upon a Quilt. It was so much fun seeing the creative way in which you used your scraps to make something so fun for your little one. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I enjoy reading them all. :)
