Soft book - baby

I have been getting hooked on soft book for kids. After browsing Pinterest for some inspiration, I have started with high contrast pages for newborn babies. They are rather simple, which is good as I will be able to learn sewing on the job!
I am using felt for the structure of the page, and more felt and fabric for the elements. I chose dimensions of 20 cm x 20 cm as it is a common size on Etsy if I want to complement my book.

All book pages on the *Soft Book* tab at the top.

Soft toys & mobile

Now that I have borrowed a sewing machine for a couple of weeks, I am starting to get the hang of it and I am making little soft toys recycling old socks and fabrics from worn out clothes or inherited leftovers.

Tutorial for sock dog: this blog page.
Tutorial for bunny socks from the Prima website.

Inspiration for the little monster: this screenshot on Pinterest.

I also made a mobile, inspired by this one available on Etsy. There are patterns available on the web, I took mine on this Spanish blog. I made the felt flowers pompom following this blog tutorial. I can't find the tutorial I use for the little ranunculus, but it's just rolling a spiral on itself.
