When Martha Elrod approached me about creating a coloring book for her little nephew, Neil, lover of trains and total BOY, I was thrilled! I have only done coloring books for little girls so far, so it was fun to aim for something a little more boyish.
Since most of the fabric I already had was flowery, pink and purple, I cut up some old kaki pants and trousers for some sturdy little boy material. The train was a lot of fun to make, and I embroidered Neil's name with some gold yellow thread. Little Neil's family is from West Virginia, so I was happy with the final color scheme :)
Thank you Martha for hiring me to make a book for your nephew!
