on saturday, i had a do-si-do pARTy. it was a comment from shona that generated the idea — she had asked if a book i posted in early april was a do-si-do. i hadn’t heard the term before! i had to google it and when i did, i found a great how-to on etsy.
for our do-si-do books, i cut 3 boards for each person, and we glued them down onto paper, leaving about a quarter inch “gutter”. then we glued a second sheet down, sandwiching the boards in the middle.
while the boards dried, we picked out interior paper. i also had some card stock prepped and we made a smaller version of the do-si-do.
jackie brought rocco, her greyhound. he made himself at home and made gus move over and share the dog bed. 8 adults + 3 dogs + 1 cat in my little house = serious negotiations for personal space.
before sewing our do-si-do’s, i trimmed the covered boards down to final size. we did a pamphlet stitch and voilà! do-si-do!
