Quiet Books

I was recently introduced to the concept of Quiet Books...little fabric/felt books for your little kid.  The most amazing Quiet Book maker seems to be Stephanie from Imagine Our Life.  She's seriously crafty with the felt and all of the books are so interactive.  Love!  

I mentioned this to my mom and she sent me a bunch of sheets of 9x12 fancy felt from the craft store.
Fun!  I just need to find the time to create some of these.  I like that Imagine Our Life has all of the directions on how to make the pages into a full book, because I have a hard time conceptualizing dimensions and sizes.

I really want to make a pirate-themed quiet book, with a shooting cannon, One-Eyed Willie, treasure chest, treasure map, pirate parrot, and a peg leg.  I have a lot of ideas for it floating around in my head.  Again...just need the time.  But in the meantime, check out these pirate quiet book pages:  Imagine Our Life (love the rolling map and the treasure chest), another version of the same by More Holiness Give Me (I like the contents of her map), and a pattern for sale.


  1. Love quiet books and have made a couple using pot holders (yes you read that right) for pages:) So fun and the kiddies seem to love them! Can't wait to see what you create with all of that fun felt.

  2. potholders?! What a great idea! I just ordered some felt earlier today, so I'm one step closer!
