Quick Color Quiet Book

So I wanted to do a quiet book for Lotte's big girl backpack, but I wanted it to be done yesterday.  As some of you who have made quiet books know, they are not something that can be done quickly.  So I decided to do a less interactive and more informative type quiet book that could be made and played within a day (or so).

So here is Lotte's Color Book...I didn't take the time to edit the pictures...don't judge, it's late and I gave birth 2 weeks ago, what's your excuse? ;)


I used felt for the pages.  And I used scrap fabrics, ribbons, ric rac, and buttons in all the colors.  I cut everything with pinking shears so I didn't hem anything.  I did a quick running stitch with embroidery thread along the edges of the fabric, and all the ribbon was hot glued on.  I know it isn't 100% quality construction, but I wanted it to be quick and easy.  So if something falls off or frays...no big deal, just glue it back on!
