Kristina's Quiet Book

For all those non-sewers out there, today's quiet book is for you! Put together by Kristina of Mother's Niche, this cute and fun quiet book is made on paper, laminated, and took her less than an hour to make. She made several versions of no-sew quiet books: magnetic, velcro, and vinyl. Below are pictures of her magnetic quiet book, and her printable quiet book available in her Etsy shop Mother's Niche on Etsy.

What's your name? Describe yourself in one sentence.  
Kristina.  If life consisted merely of creative projects I would be living a dream.

Who did you make this quiet book for? How old are they?  
My daughter and future children (my daughter is 14 months old and I'm pregnant with #2).

What's your level of sewing experience?  
Very beginner.

How long did it take you?  
To design the pages was probably 20 hours, to make the quiet book was probably less than an hour.

Did you use any templates? Where can they be found?  
Nope.  Since I couldn't find any "printable" or "no-sew" options at the time, I set out to make my own.

How did you bind your quiet book?  
Coil binding.

What material are the pages made out of?
Cardstock and lamination.

What other materials did you use?  
Velcro, magnets, or magnetic paint depending on the version.

How much did all the supplies cost you?  
Under $20 with exception to the magnetic paint version which was more.

What's your favorite page? Why?   
Daniel and the Lion's Den.  The concept of changing the Lion's moods from hungry to more pleasant just makes me giggle.

  1. I love these! I have always intended to sew some amazing quiet books for my kids and it just hasn't happened. I'm excited to try these. I clicked over to her etsy shop and I see the two printables. Where can I buy the magnetic quiet book?
