|Overview of quiet book|
I wanted to show you right after Christmas, but due to special circumstances ( Paris does not know how to handle a little snow), the gifts only made it to my nephews a couple of days ago. So you will get three posts, ant this one is the project I am the most eager to show you. It's a quiet book. It took me a while to do, not that there are a lot of technical difficulties, but apart from the mitten, I made most of the models myself (some where more than greatly inspired by what I saw on the web, but I made the patterns myself). When I started this project, I wanted several things including a zipper, snaps and buttons, and the picture shows you what I decided to do. I also wanted every thing to be attached one way or another to avoid loosing any parts (apart from the wheels, that are easy to do). I won't talk to much about it since I know you are all busy with the New year.
|The mitten, is my least favorite page, but my nephew seemed to be having fun with it,|
so I guess that was a success, I will give you the link to the pattern very soon (I will just edit this page)
|These two pages are my favorite, I wanted something very personal for the car,and the 2CV|
Charleston is my bother's in law car, and I thought it would be a nice touch.
The wheel eating monster, was inspired by a pattern that I saw on ESTY.
|Peek a boo page. My son had fun playing with it. He of course was my beta tester for the entire book|
|I saw this idea on more than one quiet book, most where made with velcro,|
but I wanted to try the snaps.
|Aquarium inspired by one of my friend's quiet book,|
Ok, not really one of my friend's quiet book, but more like her son's.
