Sheri, I made one for my girl from light weight

denium. I cut the material large enough for several

pages. Zigzaged around them and sewed together

like a book. Next, I drew a tennis shoe looking

down from it. I put eyelets in it and shoe lace to

learn to lace and tie. I cut different shapes from

denium and put snaps on them. I drew the shapes

on a page so she could match the shape and also

learn to snap. I drew crayons on a page in black

permanent marker then colored them in with basic

colors and printed the names under each one: red,

green, blue etc. I put numbers 1-10 on one page

and A B Cs on another. I sewed a zipper on a

page to learn to zip. I can't remember whatelse

I did. It's been 27 years ago. I think my grandkids

have used it too. Have fun! Joyce

Try making a cover with a very simple block method - then for the inside ---- use actual clothing scraps! Cut up that old pair of jeans and use the zipper instead of having to actually sew a zipper on it. Old buttondown shirts can be used from anywhere there are buttons! For lacing? Well, tie the spine of the book together using a lacing method, securing it halfway up so it won't fall apart, but leave part of it open for your child to lace together. You could even incorporate different types of things for the senses! Fuzzy fabric, smell-good sachts, sandpaper! Use your imagination and go wild!

(You can also use fabric glue instead of sewing! Several glues are very durable and child-safe.)

Oh wow I had one of those! My mom made it. It was denim fabric outside and white fabric inside and said "My Quiet Book." I remember a pink dress with yellow buttons inside. I know there was other stuff but I don't remember what. Sorry I don't know of a pattern I totally forgot about that book I had. Thanks for bringing up a nice memory for me.

I have a book called "A-B-C 1-2-3 Craft Book" by Noel Fiarotta & Phyllis Fiarotta. It has ideas for every letter of the alphabet and the numbers 1 - 9 for quiet book pages. My mom made the ABC book for my kids. They enjoyed it! You can pick a copy up CHEAP (75 cents!) at half.com.

I'd like to see more pictures or more explanations of some of the activities that other people used in their Quiet Books.

We live on a farm, so I took pictures of all our farm equipment (I had to use extra colored pictures to get enough equipment for 2 pages each of all the letters of the alphabet) to make a colored laminated scrapbook for each of our children's families. This was one way for our young grandchildren to learn more about the farm. When they come to visit, the know about the equipment we talk about. It helps them develop vocabulary that is dear to our hearts.

Some one gave my son a home made quiet book for his 3rd birtday. It has a tag on it from Dry Creek Design - it has lots of pages and everything is attached so it can't be lost.
