Quiet Book

I have been working so hard on getting this project finished. As soon as I started researching sewing machines...I knew that I wanted to make a quiet book. It was so much work, but it was also a great learning experience. I was able to learn how to do button holes & zippers without caring if I messed up a little bit because the boys could really care less how perfect they look. So, here are the first pages. I plan on making more. I already have a Noah's Ark page made, but I need another page for the back.

The cover for our quiet book. Pretty simple!

A counting lady bug page

Piggy Bank with coins inside AND a flower pot with button flowers

Grandpa's Jeep with a "bumpy" road & an assortment of wheels AND the front of the tic tac toe board

The back of the tic tac toe board..the yellow "bucket" is to keep the "X" & "O" in AND a cute little apple tree with a bucket to hold the apples

A felt tool box with some fun tools AND a fun tent. Inside of the tent is a cute little teddy bear.

A fun stop light & a teddy bear to play dress up

The black "envelope" holds all of Teddy's clothes AND a roadway

Zhu Zhu Pets Sleeping Bag

Today, I finally caved & bought the boys each a Zhu Zhu Pet. While selecting their new friend...they noticed all of the fun accessories & immediately started asking for them. I remembered seeing a tutorial on how to make a sleeping bag for a Zhu Zhu pet. I knew it would be perfect! Here is the tutorial by Little Birdie Secrets.

I used some left over fleece & then some scraps of cotton material. The boys each picked what they wanted. It was really easy & the boys LOVE their little hamster sleeping bags.
