Round #4: LDS Church Themed

This is my last round hosting quiet books, but I will post pictures of any other round some one is willing to host. For this last round we decide to make it gospel oriented, since the kids will be playing with them mainly at church. There were 20 participants (I still need to get three pages to complete the 20. I will post pictures of those once I receive them). Here are the pages these amazing ladies made:

Round #3

We just finished round 3 of quiet book pages. We had 12 people participate this round. We had a lot of new participants this round so everyone was free to choose any page they felt like making, even if it had been done in a previous round. Surprisingly, only the flower button page style was duplicated. Everyone did an amazing job on each of their pages. Thanks for participating!

Page #12 not here yet due to some minor complications, but it should be here soon. I will post the picture when it comes in. I think it will be worth the wait!

Finished Quiet Book!

This is a photo of one step in the process in putting the pages together. The white is the 2 sided fusible pellon/interfacing. It is ironed on to the wrong side of one fabric square then both are pinned face to face with the second piece of fabric. I only pinned and sewed three sides so I could use the open forth side to turn the pages right side out.
This is what it looks like before I turned the pages right side out. Once right side out I turned hem in on the open side and pinned it then sewed around all 4 sides of the page to close the 4th side and to give the page a finished look.
The finished project.
The pages are held together with ribbon through button holes.
This way I can remove or rearrange the pages as I see fit.

(I have recently switched out the ribbon for metal clasping rings; like the ones used to hold index cards together. They are only a few dollars for 6 of them from office supply stores. The ribbon was too hard to restring and now that baby #2 is here I am sure I will be rearranging the pages a ton more now. Also, I think I would of used rivets next time. I think they would hold up better then the button holes.)

The handles were a late night idea and I am so glad I thought of it.
Now my sweet kids can hold their own book on their arm.

*This book only has round #1 pages in it. I will try to make and post a how to video when I finally get around to putting together the second round pages and new cover for baby #2.*
