Quiet Book FREE sewing pattern
This is the Quiet Book FREE sewing pattern from the talented and generous designer Abby of Sew Much Ado.
Here’s your chance to make a fabulous activity book for your little ones. These books definitely help keep those little fingers (and minds!) busy and quiet!
This quiet book pattern has six different activity pages, as follows:-
- Family photo page,
- Unicorn braid page,
- Shoe tying page,
- Appletree page,
- Closures page,
- Shapes page.
The instructions in the designer’s tutorial are divided up into each page!
Supplies needed for ALL the book pages (separate supply lists for each page given in the instructions):-
- Eight 9″ by 9″ felt for page,
- Assorted ¼ yard felt pieces (brown, green, red, yellow, pink, blue, and white were used in this example but can be adjusted as desired),
- A piece of 7″ by 7″ white cotton fabric,
- A piece of 7″ by 7″ fusible interfacing and a 1″ by 1″ square,
- Front cover SVG template – or create your own with fabric markers, stencils, embroidery, etc,
- Heat transfer vinyl,
- Wonder Tape (optional),
- A piece of 4¼” by 6¼” clear vinyl,
- Tissue paper,
- Heat n Bond,
- Hair elastic (or create your own using fold over elastic),
- 30” shoelace,
- 5/32” eyelets and eyelet pliers,
- Eleven ½” by ½” sew-in velcro pieces (trim from a strip of Velcro),
- 12” length of webbing (width to fit parachute buckle),
- 10” length of webbing (width to fit d-rings),
- Two d-rings,
- A parachute buckle,
- One 6” non-separating zipper,
- Twelve ⅜” grommets and grommet pliers (found at your local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store or can use a grommet tool),
- A large button,
- A round elastic or non-slip covered hair elastic,
- Three ½” binder rings,
- Basic sewing supplies,
- A sewing machine.
The designer says before you begin:-
- Use wool felt whenever possible. It will pill the least with wear (compared to 100% polyester felt) and will be less prone to stretching.
- Templates are provided as needed for each page, and instructions for cutting pieces are included on each piece. Pieces that require Heat n Bond may be cut two different ways:-
- Print templates on regular paper, fuse Heat n Bond to felt (piece big enough to fit template pieces) and then trace the template onto the paper side of Heat n Bond. Cut pieces out.
- Tape Heat n Bond to regular paper and print template directly on Heat n Bond. Use pressing cloth or parchment paper between iron and Heat n Bond when fusing to felt, and then cut template.
- Wonder Tape is an optional supply, and can usually be replaced with pins, but is very helpful with holding pieces in place before stitching, and is also one of my favorite sewing supplies!
