i mentioned a while back that some friends and i got together to make quiet books. we each made twenty of one page, then we swapped pages to make a complete book of different pages! we got together in december and finally swapped pages! it was a huge project that we started way back in march of last year, so it was fun to finally see it all come together!
i am still working on putting the binding on my pages, so i will share all of the pages soon, but today i wanted to share with you the page i made.
i did a basic shapes page. i am really happy with how it turned out! i had a lot of time to kill in the car on the way to california last fall, so i decided to hand embroider the shapes onto the page. wow, did i underestimate how long that would take. twenty four hours later in the car, i still didn’t finish. but, oh well. it’s pretty cute, right?
i used my die cute machine from lifestyle crafts and cut out the basic shapes out of wool blend felt (it only works with thicker felt)
i can’t wait to show you the rest of the book! everyone really did some amazing work!
and, i can’t wait to get it finished so my kids can actually use it! that is, if i let them, wink!
