I made this truck for the 1st birthday of one of our friend's son. It was my first time not sewing on a straight line, so I was proud of my progress! To make the truck I followed Ashley's tutorial over at Make it and Love it. I changed the "embellishments" a little to match the truck in the book. It was my first time sewing a stuffed toy, so it wasn't perfect (to me) but to a toddler it is!
If you have not visited Ashley's site or looked at her tutorials, please check them out. They are so detailed and easy to follow, not to mention some great end results!

After hanging my book page wreath made here I decided the wall was still a little bare. So I picked up brown frames at the dollar store (2 for $1!) and cut two book pages to fit in the frames. I used a stamp and brown ink to put a fleur di lis on one page. On the other page I printed out a K and traced the outline (this was pre-Silhouette!) and filled with some Martha Stewart glitter.
