It's Finished!

Okay, I probably shouldn't say that the quiet book is finished because I know I am going to continue thinking of things to add or improve, but for now, it is finished in the sense that I can wrap it up and put it under the tree. Here are some pictures of the finished product:

(I made the title My Busy Book partly because it was less letters to cut out and sew)
The handles are ribbon. I "quilted" the book with receiving blankets sewn between the pages that add a little stability to the pages, and also make the book soft and thick.


I added two felt pockets in the inside cover, one for a pencil or crayons, and the other for a small notebook perhaps?
The back cover has a pocket also, one that closes with a snap.

  1. Hey! I know you posted this 2 years ago, but I just saw it. This is really cool. I want to make one for Lydia. She is getting to the age that she would love this at church. Do you have any tips?
