Colors & Puppets Quiet Book

We have books, books and more books.  But we don't have a quiet busy book.  I thought it would be quite the useful tool, considering there's lots of sitting at church and we have a pending airplane ride approaching. So, here it is:
Here was my inspiration for making the book.  I got these for couple of bucks at one of my thrifting adventures.  I love them.  But I'm the only one who wants to play with them.  Off to seek the solution.

I designed a quiet book to store these little animals in a zippered pouch.  On each page, there's a little pocket to put them in. First try was a huge success.  20 minutes of quiet play with my little guy...then passed to friends in the pew in front of us....which both the kiddo and a dad had a blast playing with them for another 20 minutes.
Each page is a single medley of colors, whipped up from my scrap fabric bin.  I sewed a vinyl pocket on each page for the little puppets.  I also embroidered the color name too.

And here's the back:
It's not too thick, but it's packed with fun.

Here's an up close of my embroidery.  My goal is to improve at that...and it's coming along (I hope).
  Overall, I'm quite happy with how it turned out. But I'm even happier that it's well loved already.

  1. That is fantastic! So much work went into that. I noticed right away that the embroidery is getting really good. Keep it up!

  2. Looks great! Definitely looks like it was a lot of work. I really need to make a quiet book before our 10 hour plan flight in May!
