Here is the quiet book I made for my daughter. Luckily, I found the pictures I had taken before I gave it to her. Let's just say she has loved this book! haha
In case you missed it, here is my Boy Quiet Book.
This is obviously the title page. I wanted to make a cute little mirror to go opposite, but couldn't find those plastic-y fake ones anywhere! Oh-well.
I LOVE this ladybug page! This was so hard for me - it was the first time I had ever sewn a zipper!! I am so proud of myself for that! It turned out okay, don't you think? :)
Here is another picture after it was in her book.
I had so much fun with this one! I think my next project will be a whole set of felt food. (I might have to learn to sew first. *sigh*)
I never took a picture of just the food, and when I got them out of my daughter's book, the corn had faded. I couldn't remember how it looked - so I guessed. Yeah, not so good huh? The first one was better.
I love these ballet slippers for the 'tie page'. This page was my nemesis, I swear. Grrrr!
Here is the original sketch - it's reversed though because of the Wonder Under. :)
Here is the dress-up page. My sister drew the doll body from a mix of a couple different shapes we found online. The dresser is a little pocket to
stuff put all the clothes in.
These clothes are so stylish, don't you think? haha
Here is her complete wardrobe. I wanted to make soooo many more - like pajamas and a swimsuit! But I didn't want the book to be any thicker than it already was. I think doing just dolls would be fun, too! :)
Button-up flowers - so sweet. The buttons are the biggest I could find, and they are wooden, so I painted them and scruffed them up a bit.
This is the same clock I made for the boy book. I made this one first though, and thought it looked a little too Mickey Mouse for my taste, so I changed it to burgandy and grey. (It totally looks like Mickey Mouse, huh?) haha
This is probably my least favorite page. I don't know why - my daughter loves it, but to me it's just...eh.
The last page is a tree with snap-on apples. I sewed every.one.by.hand. Ugh! Since then, I realized that my Crop-A-Dile does snaps - what!? I guess that's what I get for not paying attention to the instructions. The little tire swing actually dangles from the tree branch. (Very securely, I might add.)
Here are a few of the templates if you want them:
Well, that's it! I had sooo many cute ideas for things to make with felt. From puppets, playmats, and a nativity scene, to seasons and alphabet quiet books. It was the whole reason I named my blog "All The Quiet Things". Ahhh well...now maybe I can go finish some other projects. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
