And when you combine them all and spend many many many hours and late nights cutting it all up you end up with one FABULOUS Quiet Book! I am not kidding guys I out so many hours into this book and I absolutely love how it turned out! I have been wanting to make a book for a long time now and a couple months ago when the kids starting fighting over our other one I knew it was time! This book is for my daughter who is almost 17 months old, some of the pages are a little advanced for her but seeing as I was going to be putting so much time into this project I wanted it to be something that would last her a long time!
For all of my pages I used non-fusible pellon and I love it! I cut them all to be 8" x 10" and used a 3 hole punch to get my holes. The book is held together by large metal rings. I sewed the majority of my pieces on so that they hopefully will last longer. For the cover I used the same material as what I used for my pages and then cut my owl material to 9" x 11" and sewed right sides together and then turned it, put my pellon inside and then top stitched around the whole thing. There are 3 button holes along the side that I put my metal rings through. A simple ribbon tie holds the whole thing shut. This book is THICK! I had originally planned to do about 6 more pages but between running out of time and the size of this one I decided to wait awhile before I add the others.
I got all of my ideas of of Pinterest, you can check out my Quiet Book Board HERE. I have included the link for all of my pages above each picture.
There are pictures that go along with this page however I chose to not show them in the photo.
There are many more outfit choices hidden in the pocket.
I ended up including a necklace, ring, empty chapstick tube and a little mirror to my purse after the fact, which I know she will love! She is a total girly girl!
To me I think there is something special about a homemade gift. Many hours and tons of love were put into this book and I know that she will love it!
For now I am going to put down the scissors and tuck all the little felt pieces away... I think it will be awhile before I make another quiet book page!
I am partying here this week!
