A Quiet Book.

I have always wanted to make a quiet book.... like most young mums, I never had the time when my children were young...
So now  I have two special 'new' little people in my life.... the time was right..
For those who don't know, a quiet book is made from soft materials such as felt or cotton....
It can feature things to do for young fingers.....
Or, be like this design...
With pictures to look at....
And tactile features for little fingers to feel...
This was such fun to make..
It was a combination of two patterns found for free on the internet, with a couple of pictures from my
own craft books...
If you want to have a try, these are the special designers who have provided their patterns so generously..

A note of warning.... once you start on quiet books, it quickly becomes addictive....
