Felt Halloween Book with Taggies

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have created this felt Halloween book for my adorable nephew who will be visiting me this week. The book is 7 inch square felt with simple designs and embroidered words. I added ribbon taggies to the edge of the pages so he gave grab on or chew on which ever he prefers. The little ghost on the first page comes out and has bells sewn inside to jingle.

Quite Book – Busy Book

First two Pages

First two Pages

I have just started on Edward’s birthday present, I hope no one tells him. I am making him a Quite Book also called a Busy Book. I have read several blogs about these books and seen some great ideas, I think I will put several of these ideas together and add a couple of pages of my own.  I am using the principle I saw on one blog that each page should teach something. I have just completed my first two pages. The first page has a street light and the color velcro on teaching color matching and the meaning of the street light colors. The second page is a pot of flowers, the felt flowers button on to coordinating color buttons teaching both color matching and buttoning.  I am hoping that if I start now I will have it completed in time. If anyone has any suggestions for pages to add to this book I would love to hear them.
