Quiet Books or Busy Books are great for children’s development and learning. Usually made of fabric are great toddler toy for places when child has to be quiet, like in an airplane, traveling by car, at the doctor’s office or at church. Activity pages can provide hours of playing and exploring while learning and developing skills such as fine motor skills, gumption, spatial imagination, logical thinking, attention, mathematical and creative skills, diligence. The ideas of activity pages also allow learning main colours, main geometrical shapes, figures and count.
My very first quiet book was driven by the passion. I wanted to make a perfect gift for my nephew’s second birthday.
When I started making it didn’t have any idea how it will go or where it’s gonna drive me. Thankfully I found many ideas on Pinterest, but it was so hard to decide which pages to make so number of pages was increasing every day. It took me almost two months for making it mostly because I didn’t use any patterns so I had either make them by myself or just cut shapes from my head. It turned out that it goes great for me without patterns, that is how I get every book slightly different from the previous. When I was done I had total of 16 beautiful pages as you can se below.
As every little by loves tractors I couldn’t go without one. Wheels can go on and of to practice buttoning. To make it special I’ve put picture of him and grandpa inside. Combined with trailer turned out it was his favourite activity page.
That is how I found a great satisfaction telling stories through sewing my activity books. Every book have some special pages and every book is one of a kind. That is why I love custom orders, it drives me even further out of my comfort zone and every time it turns out to be great, as you will se later introducing my other quiet books.
