Soft baby booklet tutorial (+ GIVE-AWAY)

As most of you may know, Birch includes beautiful cheater quilt fabrics in about each of its fabric lines. Did you also know that you can make much more with them than simply cheater quilts? 

Click here to find out how you can turn a piece of cheater quilt fabric into a soft baby booklet. Make it a super quick baby shower gift, or go for a fun toy full of activities for baby.


Would you like to give it a try yourself? I have some Everyday Party cheater quilt fabric left, and I'm giving it away together with a bunch of other supplies you need for making a booklet (batting, ribbons, a squeaker, lace, faux sheepskin).

You can win by leaving a comment below, and/or following me via Facebook. Simply use the Rafflecopter widget below. The contest closes in one week. Good luck!
