The Pages

Back to the quiet book for this post- getting prepared with some pages

All of the patterns are made to fit on the same page. Before starting to design the different activities for each page I made a selection using different fabrics. I have a rediculous amount of fabric and this is a great way of using bits up. 

Again I used felt to give the page, like the cover, a bit more strength and structure. 

1. Cut you felt to the size you desire for the page. My pages are 19.5 x 23.5 cm to fit my book. 

2. Iron your fabric (this is the only time I iron! My clothes are creased my makes are not) 

3. Using spray adhesive attach your felt to the wrong side of your fabric and cut leaving a 2 cm allowance around all sides

4. Fold the fabric over to meet the edge of the felt and then fold over again sewing around all edges. This is the cheaters way of doing a quilt edge. It’s quick and easy. 


5 Add the rivets making sure the match your binder spacing

6 Add snap fasteners to the opposite corners so that the pages are interchangeable. If your page fabric pattern has to be up a certain way to work then you will have to decide now whether it’s a left page or a right page. If the pattern is not then you can decide later. Make sure one is an inny and the other is an outy (and other such technical terms)


7 Get ready to make your first quiet book activity
