Tutorial | Soft Baby Booklet | by StraightGrain
I really love cheater quilt fabrics – they are so great to create a super fast faux patchwork quilt, for instance. But there is more you can make with them. How about a really sweet baby booklet?
This tutorial will show you how to make a basic booklet – the ideal last-minute baby shower gift. But if you have a bit more time on your hands, you can make the booklet more interesting by adding some of the 8 ideas explained in the second part.
1. Basic baby booklet
– a piece of cheater quilt fabric which contains at least 8 different tiles (8 tiles are needed for a 4 page booklet)
-batting: I used fleece, but you can use any type you like.
– thread, scissors, pins, a sewing machine.
5. Turn the piece right side out, and press so the edges are neat and crisp. Repeat steps 1 to 5 for the other page(s).
6. Put the different pages on top of each other, putting the sides with the turning holes together. Make sure the turning holes are not gaping. Stitch the pages together as shown in the picture below.
That’s all there’s to it!

B. Quilted surface:
So here’s my 6-month old daughter Ava, testing out her new booklets. Do you like the blanket she’s lying on? It was made in Bear Family, another fabric from Emily Isabella’s beautiful Everyday Party line. A booklet and an assorted blanket – how is that for a unique baby shower gift?
