Some of my favorite pages from Sabrina's quiet book include her solar system page (wow! So cute and cool and the detail on her planets is incredible!), her farm page (the ears of corn are awesome), her refrigerator page (looooove all the food), and her forest page (again - the detail is just incredible). It would be hard to not be inspired by this book. So please, enjoy!
What's your name? Describe yourself in one sentence.
My name is Sabrina and I am a stay at home mama from Germany.
Who did you make this quiet book for? How old are they?
I made it for my wonderful daughter Christina. She is almost 2 years old and already loves her book.
What's your level of sewing experience?
I think I am advanced.
How long did it take you?
I don't know... Maybe 2-4 hours per page. I do all embroidery files by my own which has taken the most time to complete.
Did you use any templates? Where can they be found?
Most ideas I found on this blog. I made my own embroidery and cutting files. I am not very good in handstiching. So I decided my machines can do the work :). Here are two other pages I found my inspiration from - Solar system: Imagine Our Life: Solar System Quiet Book Page; Forest page: Meli Melo: Wild Animal Habitat.
How did you bind your quiet book?
I used grommets and binder rings.
What material are the pages made out of?
I don't know the English word. In German it's called embroidery felt. It is for embroidery applications and it is washable and stable.
What other materials did you use?
Cotton and fleece for applications. Ribbons, buttons, KamSnaps, and felt.
How much did all the supplies cost you?
I think the materials which I used have a value of more than 60€. About $80.
What's your favorite page? Why?
Ooooh! This is hard to say! But my top 3 pages are - solar system - farm page - forest page.
Thank you so much for sharing your book with us, Sabrina. It's fantastic!
