Quiet book pages

The past two weeks have consisted of trying to make a quiet book. I found many blogs that had pictures of the quiet books they have made, but not a lot of them had patterns for the pages I wanted to do. So I first had to draw out all of the patterns myself before we (my mom and I) could even think about putting it together. That's why it's taken me so long. I read other blogs where they say they see a cute idea on a blog and then whip it up that night and post about it the next day. I've decided I am not one of those people that can do that, which is okay. It just takes me longer to get anything done. And well, the fact of the matter is the quiet book is far from being done, but it is done enough to post pictures because I just couldn't wait. I will have to finish it when I go home for Christmas in a few weeks. But here are some pictures of 6 of the pages.

Noah's Ark zipper, shoelace tying, and buckleAs you can see I still have some minor details like a face for the little people and a shoelace for the shoe, but it's getting there. The animal finger puppets for the Noah's Ark came from IKEA.

If anyone wants to put one of these together sometime and needs patterns or help, just let me know because the patterns were the biggest headache and took the longest time.

Here are the links that I used to get ideas from:



  1. That looks awesome! No wonder it has taken a while! Good job. I've always wanted to make these, but I don't think I'm talented enough to take on such a big endeavor!

  2. This is amazing! I've been wanting to make one for Mac, but I am no artist. Your patterns are wonderful...I would love to know more about how you made the patterns/pages. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I can see that these pages took a while. They are awesome - I especially like mini clothespin line with clothes. M&M is pretty lucky to have such a creative mommy.

  4. Girl, that is INCREDIBLE!! I absolutely love it and so will M&M! Maddie would love one... I wonder if I have it in me?? I'll have to check out your links.
