This is a diaper bag size book, with pages of heavy pellon. The pictures are made with felt and adorned with buttons and embroidery. The felt pictures are sewn on using embroidery thread and a blanket stitch. I used sew-on google eyes or black beads for eyes.
I did 2 pages per piece of pellon, and the pellon is cut the size of half a sheet of typing paper. The pages are folded and then sewn together two or three at a time, then all of those pieces sewn together with a blanket stitch. I then opened the sewn pages to the middle of the pages, and sewed them onto the cover, making sure the stitches on the cover are small and aligned. The cover is made of a quilted fabric edged with sewn on bias tape. I sewed a button on the front and a ribbon on the back of the cover so I could loop the ribbon around the button to keep the book closed when not using.
