Magda's Toy Story Quiet Book

My two-year-old has recently become obsessed with Toy Story. She watches at least one Toy Story movie a day (sometimes two) and runs around at night proclaiming that she's Buzz Lightyear. So I was especially delighted when Magda (who made this incredible Christmas quiet book) made and sent me a Toy Story quiet book!

This book is awesome. It's so cute and so well made. The first page has a matching Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and three of the green little aliens. The second page is a dress-up Mr. Potato Head page. The third page is a "Pizza Planet" page, with pizza slices that have different numbers of pepperoni pieces for counting. That's followed by a piggy bank/color matching page. Finally, the last page has Lotso, with different trashcans and a trash truck for matching shapes.

I love this quiet book and wish I had one for my Toy-Story-obsessed little girl. It looks so fun!

Each book for about 3 weeks. I sew mostly in the evenings for about 2-3 hours.

I sewed the pages together with embroidery floss.

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

What's your favorite page? Why? 
I really like Woody and Buzz and I am very happy with the pizza page.

Thank you so much for submitting your awesome book, Magda!

  1. This is incredible. So much detail!

  2. I wish so badly I could have a pattern to this! I have no clue where I would even begin trying to figure it out on my own!
