Things I wish were different:
Poor sewing skills, not great measurements on all the pages, didn't think about how I'd be constructing everything at the end before I started out (always my problem), didn't take into account hemming of page edges before planning out/constructing activities on each page. Should've made pages bigger from the start to sew the edges together on one side without it taking part of the image on the page with it (i.e. seam allowance!) This is a big part of my frustration at this time. Also, some of the page elements didn't fit on the page itself so I had to put some things in pockets on the "jacket" cover (an old jean vest I plan on using.) And lastly, the book itself is pretty big and bulky!
I am aware that children playing with this book should be supervised, due to some of the page elements being possible choking hazards.
