ABC Quiet Book

I finally finished my ABC quiet book! I made it for the girls, though Charlotte is a little young yet, to take to church and help keep them entertained and quiet through the meeting.
The cover here is a green microsuede.
A is for apple and it has a flap that they can lift to expose the inside of the apple. B is for butterflies and they can be removed from the net.
C is for clock and D is for Dress-up.
The E is for elephant. The ear is stuffed and a flap and made from denim. F is for flowers and they button on.
G is for grapes and they assemble to bunch of grapes. H is for hair. The bows at the bottom are removable so they can learn to braid.
For the I they can build ice cream cones. J is for Jack-in-the-box.
K is for kite and the bows are removable. L is for lollipop. This page is about matching colors.
Mail is for mailbox with a flag that moves and a box that opens. N is probably my favorite page. It has a nest with little red birds that come out of the eggs.
O is for owl with eyes that spin and a beak and wings that open. P is for puzzle. The pieces stay in a little pouch on the page.
A stretch but Q is for quack and the duck are buttoned on. R is for rainbow and if they lift up the little hill there is a pot of gold at the end. The rainbow is even accurate. I still remember ROYGBIV from grade school.
The S page has a shoe for learning how to tie. And T has a tic tac toe board that folds up with a pouch containing playing pieces.
U is undersea. There is a large blue flap that they can lift up to see a fish, octopus and starfish. V is a basket full of vegetables.
W is for weave with strips of felt for them to practice weaving with. The X is for xylophone. It doesn't do anything, but not a lot of fun things start with X.
Y is for yak and it is just a texture page, soft and fuzzy And the Z is for zipper. The little pouch has a few crayons and a small notebook.
It is FINALLY finished! I'm not letting Lily play with it at home, mostly because there are a lot of little pieces and I want it to be a special toy for church so that she is more interested in it when I give it to her. So I guess that we will see how she likes it on Sunday.


  1. Wow! I am sooo impressed! :) Love it!

  2. Holy Cow! This is awesome! I love it! You are very talented.

  3. Jenn, this is absolutely incredible! You are so talented and so loving. What a beautiful, creative, thoughtful gift for your girls. Well done, Mama, well done.

  4. Dang! Good job. I love your pages and having made one before I know how much work you put into it. I am sure it will be a big hit with the girls for a long time to come. Very awesome.

  5. Wow! That is awesome! And a ton of work! Did you make up all the ideas yourself? You are impressive!

  6. Wow! Great job Jenn! So cute. Did you follow a pattern or do it all yourself? I wouldn't be surprised if you DID make it up are so crafty and talented! Love it!

  7. I made it with my sisters. We found a pattern that we liked, but the lady wanted $25 for the pattern! So I copied some of the page ideas, but there were a lot that we didn't care for so we came up with new ideas. Really it is a combination of about 8 different books that I looked at and then we made our own patterns.

  8. Great job, that looks wonderful! Did you come up with all the page ideas?
