    I too thought that was pretty funny and got a chuckle out of it.

    BTW, when reading your post.....Questions about making a baby......came up and gave me a chuckle.
    Gotta admit, it is funny!!! I definitely wasn't paying attention this morning, was I? .

    I have made several of the books for my grandbabies and I used scraps left over from quilts. I didn't prewash the fabric. I would use a color grabber if I did prewash. I also smiled when I read the topic in the list as " Questions about making a baby".

    I have made several of these and would recommend getting a thinner batting. Once you try to join all the pages it will be pretty thick.

    When you say 'high loft' - does that mean it is thick ? I made a few books last year and used thinner batting because there are lots of layers to sew at one time and I found that to work better for me.

    Questions about making a baby fabric panel book

    Just got some adorable panels to make a baby story book. Do you think I should prewash the fabric panel? Also, the batting I have is high loft 100% cotton. Is that too heavy or is it okay for batting between the pages? I have never made on of these before. Thanks for any advice!
