I am looking for Quiet Book patterns, the kind that would have activities, like buttons, zippers, etc.
Sheri, I made one for my girl from light weight
denium. I cut the material large enough for several
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.
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 made three of them for my gr children this year for Christmas, would love to share them with you, but not sure how. Brenda
