Quiet Book

by Mommy on November 25, 2013

You may have noticed it’s been quiet around my little blog lately.  I was in Mexico for the beginning of November to celebrate our 10 year anniversary (post coming soon) and with only 1 month left of mat leave I’ve been sulking around the house and using my time to do all the things I need to get done before I start my regular Monday – Friday work week.  I also have been addicted to making these quiet books for the girls.

Warning, before you read on, these are time suckers.  They look amazing, are lots of fun, and easy to complete, but they take up all your free (and not free) time.  With both kids asleep by 7 every night (finally), I thought I would have more time to blog, but then I saw these quiet books on Pinterest and well, just like crochet, it’s taken up all my evenings.  I’m happy to say, they are finally complete.

Here’s a look at the finished projects:

Big Girl (5)

Quiet book

Pages include

  • Car Track
  • Lady Bug Snaps and zipper
  • Flower Buttons
  • Heart and button lace through
  • Heart Weave
  • Cupcake numbers
  • Ark Finger Puppets

For the Baby:

Quiet Book for baby

he pages include:

  • Car Track
  • Frog zipper and snaps
  • Farm puppets
  • Button Hearts
  • Mitten
  • Peek-a-boo owl and baby

I also have a page with different textured hearts, but must have forgotten to snap a photo.

These were all easy to make, they just took time… a lot of time.  It’s a lot of small little detailed work with felt and embroidery thread.    I also added Love Mom on the back cover, as you can see, it’s not straight, my handy work is far from perfect and I’m not creative, but I was still able to pull this off… it’s that easy.

I think these would make an amazing Christmas Gift for a child that you love very much.

So if you find yourself with countless of hours with nothing to do (’cause you know… that’s exactly how I was feeling?!?) then this is the perfect project for you.

Have fun.

They turned out to be really cute! You can take them with you when you travel, or for quiet places like weddings and more.

SO very cute! Great idea.

What a cute idea – bet it took hours and hours. I might steal your idea & work on one of these myself. It should help use up some of my sewing odds & ends.
