Mini Quiet Book

A friend was teasing me for working so hard on a quiet book while I was still pregnant.  After all, my little boy wouldn't be ready to play with my big quiet book for at least a of couple years.   As I thought about it, I realized that she was absolutely right.  So I put aside my big quiet book for a couple of weeks and got stitching on a mini-quiet book.  I loved this project because it was all hand sewn.  I like the idea of sewing, but don't really enjoy the reality of it.  However, hand stitching through felt is so easy and everything went together quicker than I could have imagined it.  Again, most of my ideas came from other brilliant women who share on the internet.  I am not an artist, so I rely heavily upon Google images.  I'd find an animal I liked, resized it, printed it and used it for my pattern.
