Talk-About Books are the most popular item I’ve made. The background story is I saw a quilt called “Surprise” by created by Karen DuMont at Karie Patch designs. It had adorable “peek-a-boo” (my description) blocks. The teacher in me saw those blocks in a book!
I contacted Karen with my idea, and she gave me permission to go for it. So I worked on many prototypes until I got it just right.
All the first ones sold to friends, so one summer I made the goal of making 40 more. They all sold. Then I made 20 more, and still have about 7 left. I’ll definitely be making more.
My dil asked if I could make one smaller for the car, so I did. It has more pages, but no peek-a-boo pages. That one my daughter named “Talk About Too.” Love that. I only have one left, so making more is on the to-do list
These are washable and come with a page of suggestions on how to use it for vocabulary development and the building of a child’s imagination.
Customers had a hard time choosing which book(s) to buy. At craft shows, one would look through each of the books on the table, and set aside the maybes. Then go back to that pile and choose 1 or 2.
These photos show pages from different books. I had a few requests to make some more specific to boys, so there are some.
Custom books are not made, but we can chat and pick a book with at least one important fabric–such as kittens, farm animals, puppies…
