While my daughter was expecting our first grandchild, I set the goal of making a quiet book. My friend, Leigh, heard of the project and suggested we do one together. Her creative daughter Jennifer joined in, and the three of us came up with 14 pages. This project later turned into a class which we offered to the ladies at our church. I made a few more pages and divided them between two books. We were challenged but had fun, too!
|The book didn't originate with a set plan, so not every page worked out as far as left right orientation goes. The pocket opposite the shoe contains the felt dress-up pieces for the snowman on the following page.|
|The mailbox flag is cut from a plastic binder and secured with a jeans rivet. The door is secured by a small magnetic closure used for purses.|
|I love the fabric behind the ark. Doesn't it look like rain? The ark contains little flat felt animals. On the counting page, the beads are strung on strips of tulle. Clever idea by Jennifer!|
