Five or six years ago my friend Jennifer made a quiet book for her daughter. At the time we hung out all of the time and she was my craft inspiration. We learned to knit together and now she’s a knitting fiend. I dropped knitting because my body couldn’t keep up. I made a quiet book for my niece back then and pretty much copied Jennifer’s layout.
Two Christmases ago I determined to make one for Caleb. I got almost all the way done, and then had Alice December 1st. So I didn’t finish it and it sat for a year. I just gave it to Caleb this past Christmas. He and Alice both love it. He can’t quite do the buttons on his own. But he enjoys it. Alice just loves sticking out her chubby little finger to feel all of the buttons and ooh and ahh over them. She’s so cute.
Here’s pictures of Caleb’s quiet book. You can see we are already missing a boot in the winter scene. But it’ll be easy to just cut out another one. I’d put up pictures of Casey’s (my niece) book but the files are no longer connected to our hard drive. Plus Caleb’s is very similar to hers. Though I got a bit more creative with his, not much though.
Jennifer originally got this idea from the craft queen herself. Though Jennifer decided it would be much better to sew the pages together instead of glue them. I agree.
