Let's peel back these layers!

juliannlaw Here is a closeup of the endpapers in my debut picture book, THE WORKD’S LONGEST SOCK. I work digitally in Adobe Photoshop but the program doesn’t do it all for me! I knit all the pixels by hand! Haha! I do have things I do to help me work quickly and efficiently, though, like using layers. Here you get to see me take off those layers one by one till we are back at nothing but a background. The World's Longest Sock is now available on  Amazon ,  Barnes and Noble ,  Target , or wherever you  buy books !

Receiving Blanket

I just made a simple receiving blanket for Baby Law. . . I'll take it to the hospital with me if I remember! I've been so forgetful lately. Maybe you can see just from the picture, but it is just one layer of white flannel cut 36 x 36" and then ironed in one inch on all sides. I mitered the edges as I went and the covered the edge with a ribbon. I can imagine a lot of variations using this simple formula. . .
