Sami's "Things That Go" Quiet Book

Today is the second quiet book from Sami of Diary of an Overworked Mum's Kid Spot! This book is as cute and creative as her first. The theme Sami chose for this quiet book was "Things That Go," and she made pages of a hot air balloon, a boat, a crane, a car and traffic light, a rocketship, an airplane, a tractor, and a train. What a fun book!

(The answers in this interview also refer to Sami's other two quiet books, one of which posted on Monday and one of which will post on Friday.)

What is your name? Describe yourself in one sentence. 
My name is Sami. I am currently a stay at home in Brisbane, Australia.

Who did you make this quiet book for? How old are they? 
I made them for my three children who are 6, 4 and 2.

What is your level of sewing experience? 
Beginner. My "On The Farm" quiet book was my first ever sewing project.

How long did it take you? 
I honestly could not say exactly, maybe about a week or two for each book with about 2-6 hours a day. With them being my first sewing projects and having no one to teach me anything it was made up of a lot of trial and error.

Did you use any templates? Where can they be found? 
I used no templates; however, I did use some ideas that I found online.

How did you bind your quiet books? 
I just kind of poked a hole in the pages and stuck binder rings through them.

What material are the pages made out of? 

What other materials did you use? 
Just felt and ribbon.

How much did all the supplies cost you?
I don't know exactly but it was definitely in the hundreds.

What's your favorite page? Why? 
I think the ladybug is my favorite. Probably because it was my first zipper and press studs and I felt like they turned up really well.
