Quiet Book

For Savannah's birthday I started a quiet book. I say started because it only has 10 pages, but I love every page. Savannah has been playing with it, well more like eating the pages. Austin has asked me to make a book for him. I will have to work on that one. Most of the pages came from other blogs, but a few were mine.

I have to say a big thank you to My mother and Father in-law they put the things on the edge of the page so the rings could go through. I wanted the rings so I could add pages as I went.

Everything I used I had on hand. It was a goal to not purchase any new materials. It worked!

I'm pretty sure this was me...just some simple felt color balloons to match

Mine as well, under each flap is a family member, after it was done I thought I should add a spot for her photo:)

Mine, matching shapes with different fabric

a mitt to put her hand in both the little ones love this one
I got this from Here

This was mine, but I think every quiet book has a version, it has ruff, soft, silk, and bump fabric

Little girl with clothes and on the left side is pocket with zipper to hold the clothes
also gotten here.

When I saw this I just had to have it from homemade by Jill

The back has 2 pockets to store all the lose pieces

I really, REALLY wish that I'd sewn one of these when my girlies were young enough to appreciate them. I do craft fairs, so I suppose that I could always just sew some anyway to sell, but they're such a labor of love, that I don't think I could muster the motivation unless I was sewing for someone that I loved!
