Soft Counting Book with Buttons

I finally got around to using up the leftover pages from the ABC Book I made and made the number book I have had in mind.

I used heat transfer vinyl again for the numbers because it's so easy and has always worked out really well for me.  But I also added some buttons to each page which was kind of a pain since the pages were already put together.  It would've been a lot easier if I had sewed the buttons on before sewing the pages together, but it still worked out.  I was so happy to be done sewing them on though!

I put the book together using eyelets and rings again and I really like it:


I used the leftover letters from the ''Made in Illinois'' onesie for the back page.  I made this back page when I was making the ABC book but didn't end up using it for that, so I'm glad it worked out to use it for the numbers book!
