scraps fabric felt mini book.

I made a few of these books for my moms for mothers day and they were a lot of fun to make! *disclaimer though, I'm not a scrapbooker, I wish I was, but I'm not and all the stuff from the pages are just fabric, felt and scrapbook stuff I already had! You can go ahead and by cute matching stuff to make your album if you want too. I embraced my imperfections and the fact that it didn't all match and I liked it. So, whatever floats your boat! I got the idea here and made my own with that I had.
here's what you will need

*fabric scraps
*Felt
*Stiff felt
*Scrapbook stuff (ribbons, buttons, stickers...)
*glue stick & glue gun
*scissors
*sewing machine
*velcro, snaps or whatever you want to hold your book together

I took my stiff felt piece and cut it to the size I wanted and then pinned and sewed the fabric on

I cut my felt pieces the size I wanted and sewed them on down the middle of the book. for some reason I don't have a picture of that? bare with me here...
I wish I had those cute scissors that cute different patterns, but I don't so I cut my own squigglys.

next I took another piece of the stiff felt and covered it with fabric. I sewed it right onto the back of the book for a strap to hold it all together.
