Hi everyone! Sorry things are slow around here these days. I am actually VERY busy with several craft projects at the moment. I just haven’t finished any of them enough to post yet! So while you are waiting, here is a project I did about three years ago—a fabric quiet book. I saw a friend with one at church and fell in love. Had to make one. Little did I know what a HUGE, never-ending project it would turn out to be.
Some pages are my original design and others are based on the book my friend had (and who knows where those ideas came from). Let’s just say this was a learning experience…my first time attempting anything this intricate and my first time doing applique!
So here it is…the fabric quiet book.
Next, kids can pull on the elephant’s tail to make him eat the “peanuts”. They can also buckle and unbuckle the belt on the pants.
Next, kids decide how much money to put in the tithing envelope and how much to put in the piggy bank. Then they can make funny faces (another of my favorite pages). The face is made of felt and sewn on a pocket that stores the face pieces.
Oops…I told you this was a never-ending project. The tree is supposed to be a family tree with little apples that have pictures of family members on them. Just haven’t finished those dang apples. The other page is Jonah and the Whale. The whale has a zippy mouth so he can eat Jonah.
The red and blue pocket holds paper dolls (which I posted pictures of in the magnetic quiet book post). The other page is a race track. The road signs come unsnapped and can be moved around. The little car parks in the light green pocket.
Next we have hair braiding. The flowers on her hat can also be unbuttoned. The next page is a magnetic fishing game. The water is a pocket that holds the fish and the rod.
