Quiet Book Revealed

I started working on this quiet book for my son on January 1st. Finally, 4 months later, the quiet book is ready to rock n' roll. I will be posting patterns and step-by-step instructions for the individual pages, so keep checking back.

I'm so delighted with this book, I love how it turned out. I do have to confess that I have several more pages in various stages of completion, but I really wanted to get the majority in the book.

I sewed binder rings into my cover so that the pages can go in and out. The back cover has a little pocket for treats or extras.

Feel free to leave a comment with any questions, and I'll work on getting my directions and patterns posted.

For details on page size and fabric, see this post.

You did an amazing job on your quiet book! I am working on a couple for my nephews, and was wondering how you got your book rings into the quiet book-- I would like to do that, but am new at the whole sewing thing... and am not quite sure where to start on that particular aspect of my books... thanks!! :)

Valerie - I'm making a quiet book for a friend and I will take pictures as I put the cover together. It took me a long time to figure out the best way to do it, lol, but it ended up being really simple. Check back soon!

DO you have your quiet books for sale???

Also you can try the Dollar tree or 99 cents stores for felt its not always a billion colors but they usually have a package of 10 with a couple of colors.

I was just wondering if you were ever able to post a tutorial about how you made the cover? I am going to make one of these for my daughter and will start the pages tomorrow, but would like to hear the dimensions, material layers and how you put in the binder rings please. Thanks! I've looked up many different quiet books and yours is my absolute favorite!

Hey I was wondering what you made your cover out of and how you connected the binder to it? I want to start on this but wanted to know how to start it. Thank you!
