Quiet Book Pages for Girls: Flower Garden and Hair Braiding




I just recently finished a quiet book for my nieces.  It was a lot of fun to make.  I love making things for people that I love (it makes sewing velcro onto everything that much more tolerable).  It was a nice change to make things for girls rather than little boys.  I thought that I'd share a few images from the Quiet Book.



 I found a great blog with some really fantastic Quiet Book pages, Crafty Chic.  I really loved her Hair braiding page and also a little puzzle page.   I wanted to incorporate activities that could keep the attention of little girls between the ages of 1-5.  The Puzzle Page seemed like a great option.  Lyric from Crafty Chic made her page with 9 pieces, but I chose to just have 4.  When making the actual images I had to plan out where I'd be stitching and embroidering so that it would be disrupted by the cutting of the image, 4 pieces just seemed much easier to work with.  I ended up making 3 puzzles, and apple, a bird, and a sunshine.  There is a pocket on the opposite page for storing unused puzzle pieces.  As with most pieces in the quiet book I used a double layer of felt to provide more stability when handling the pieces.  I am pretty pleased with how the puzzles turned out.



The Hair Braiding Page was a little bit intimidating to me.  I simply couldn't decide what the best way would be to attach the yarn.  I didn't want the doll to suffer with alopecia.  I ended up solving the problem by cutting several long strands of yarn.  I divided the length of the yarn into three sections with the middle section being a bit longer than the length of the hairline.  I braided the middle section, tied off the braid with some small pieces of yarn, and then attached the braid by stitching directly through the braid.  It seemed like a good solution to the problem (I am sure that this is one of those things that I have seen done and was stored in my mind only to be regurgitated at the proper moment).  If you visit Lyric's page you will notice that the design of my doll is incredibly similar to hers.  I love how simple she kept the face.  She is also quite clever with her storage solutions.  She made the body of the doll into a pocket, which I did also.  Inside the pocket are several elastics and ribbons for the dolls hair. (The cute Riley Blake fabric for the pocket was also used on the inner cover and crayon caddy, super cute!)



The Flower Garden Page is everywhere and in no way an original idea, but I still really like it.  You might notice that my small pink flower has three layers of fabric.  I did not sew all three layers of fabric together, in fact the bottom layer of fabric is stitched to the page, and the top two are stitched together.  Three layers of fabric is just too much for small fingers to handle when learning to button.

I also girled  up the tic-tac-toe board (no image).  I made flowers and butterflies for the pieces.  It turned out quite cute.



For the Name page I had to make more letters than I was used to. This book is primarily for my niece Ava, but her two older sisters will surely use it as well.  I made enough letters to spell each of their names (luckily they have some common letters which saved me some time).

If you are interested in seeing additional Quiet Book Page ideas be sure to check out the links on the right of my blog.

Love the book! I tried to make one and it turned out okay, but it was my first felt attempt. Just letting you know I sent you an award. Check it out on my site http://www.thetshirtdiaries.com/2010/06/award-for-me.html

Best Article about weed for sale. Excellent post. I appreciate this site. thanks for sharing! Because the admin of this web page is working, no doubt very quickly it will be well-known, due to its quality contents. I’ve found something that helped me. it has never been easy to buy weed online in USA because there are few suppliers who can actually supply you with good quality weed.
