Magda's Christmas Quiet Book

Okay, before getting to today's post (which is an AWESOME Christmas quiet book), I want to remind you guys to enter this week's giveaway! You might win Amy Pincock's "Quiet Book Patterns: 25 Easy-to-Make Activities for Your Children."
Just click on this picture!

All right, now today's quiet book comes to us from Magda, a stay-at-home mom from Poland who's currently living in China. She made an adorable Christmas/winter-themed quiet book (two of them, actually) as a Christmas present. I love so much about this quiet book, but some of my favorite things are the Christmas tree branch (on the first page), the Christmas tree with different shape ornaments on it, and Santa and his reindeer. I love how well done everything is and how interactive the pages are - the Snowman dress-up is a great idea, and I love how the penguin's igloo is also a puzzle. I know it's March and Christmas is a long ways away, but it's never to early to start planning quiet books! Enjoy!


What's your name? Describe yourself in one sentence. 
My name is Magda. I'm Polish but currently living in China. I'm a stay-at-home mum of 2 kids.

Who did you make this quiet book for? How old are they? 
I made two books. They were Christmas gifts for a boy who is 2.5 and a girl who is 1.5 years old.

What's your level of sewing experience?
I'm a beginner.

How long did it take you?
About 2 weeks. I sew mostly for about 2-3 hours in the evenings.

Did you use any templates? Where can they be found?
I used part of the "Penguin & Igloo" template from for the igloo page. Christmas tree - the idea taken from iSLCOLLECTIVE: Shapes and Colors worksheet.

How did you bind your quiet book? 
I sewed the pages together with embroidery floss.

What material are the pages made out of? 

What other materials did you use? 
Snaps, Velcro, ribbons, buttons and beads.

How much did all the supplies cost you? 
Not sure. I had all the supplies at home.

What's your favorite page? Why? 
I love a gift page and a Santa page. They were real fun to make and I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful quiet book with us, Magda!
