I made a 'quiet book' for my grand daughter who is almost one, and actually had the pleasure of giving it to her in person -after all she lives a long way away and that is a rare treat.
I put a transfer of a photo on the cover.
Inside there is a pretty piece of fabric I saved from one of Annabelle's dad's left over Chrysalis ties. The dress has a collar and buttons for little fingers to play with.
The eyelets caused a bit of consternation, but the application of a hammer with force soon sorted them out. I guess this zip will be too hard for Annabelle to unzip for a while, but she will grow into it.
Farm fabric and flowers with velcro attached -will be much easier for little fingers to tackle now.
The buttons were a big hit and the peek-a-boo bunny behind the flap caused a smile.
A doyley for texture and flaps to play with, and velcro pulls which will be a challenge for a while. They take quite a bit of effort to pull.
Crazy cat fabric and a cross which can be pulled out of the pocket.
Last page love letter!
I think she likes it!
If you want to make one of these books, set aside quite a bit of time but it is a very enjoyable project.
