A Quiet Book

I made Hannah a Quiet Book for her first birthday.
She's really into owls.  R-E-A-L-L-Y.  She can whooooo with the best of them and she recognizes an owl whether it's my half inch owl necklace pendant or a five-foot owl on a recycling truck.  She's quite a remarkable one year old if I say so myself, and I can say so because I'm her Mama Sherry. :) 

So, I didn't even have to think twice about what to put on the cover of her quiet book.

And, without further ado, here are the pages of Hannah's Quiet book.


 Button the flowers.
Jingle the kitty's bow tie.

 Shuck the corn.

Peek in the birdy's nest.

The butterfly's wings make a happy, crinkly sound when little hands play with them.

Where's the doggy?

There he is on his ribbon leash.
 One, two, tie my shoe.

After finishing up the quiet book, I made a special card and...
...pulled out the little owlet I had already made, and...
...packed them all into a comfy little box and shipped them off up north to Indiana.
Note:  I used Simplicity Pattern 3709 for the Quiet Book.

  1. Simply adorable . . . they are going to love them :)

  2. Oh what a sweet little book! I LOVE it! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  3. That is a darling book! I made one 16 years ago for my grandson to take on a plane trip - Considering I have more grands coming all the time I should probably make another one now. You make it look easy - and certainly fun!

  4. You have a lovely blog, and I'm so impressed with that quiet book you made, wow! my kids used to like the spot books as they were interactive too! That book will be a treasure for your sweet grand daughter!

  5. What a special gift for a first birthday!
