After seeing so many amazing "quiet books" on the wonderful world of Pintrest and seeing the amazing job my sister in law did making one for my daughter I was inspired to try my hand at the craft. I drew from a few different resources, but my main muse was this adorable clothing fastenings quiet book from "Forty-two Roads". It appealed to me mainly because I don't know how to put in a zipper yet (I know, I'm lame) but I thought, "what better way to cheat having to put in my own fastenings then to take apart old clothing?".
I had a lot of fun doing this, it didn't actually take me too long either. Maybe a couple of obsessed sewing days;). I lined each page with fleece that I had left over from a car-seat cover I made for Lucy a million years ago. All the pages were out of random scrap fabric I had lying around. I cut them out using a 12 x12 scrapbook piece of paper as a pattern. I also used some felt I already had (who doesn't just have tons of that lying around? I always do) The only thing I had to purchase for this book was some velcro for the fastening around the book and the number buttons as well as some iron-ons and a few pieces of thrifted baby clothing. The total cost came to about eight dollars! Not too shabby!
