Quiet Book-- Finished Product!

I spent so much time creating the quiet books and documenting their progress only to "fall off the wagon" when it came time to post about it's completion!  If you want to see the process, checkout my other blog that I created just for it: (I had to hide it from my sisters in law.... I wanted them to be surprised!)
So, without further ado, here's the final product... :) (you can click on the links in the caption to go to the post where I talked about how I created it, and how it came together with more detail, and see more detailed pictures... ok, enough "ado"..... )

The outside, I kept it simple. I wanted to add their names or something, but nothing ever "felt" right...:)

Page 1, Peek-a-boo

Page 1, open-- a pic of their family

Pages 2-3 -- On the Move

Pages 4-5-- zippers, and shapes
Pages 6-7, Noah's Ark and Tie My Shoe

Pages 8-9, Help Peter Catch the Fish and Put the Apples in the Basket

10-11: Help me get dressed
Page 12-13: Head Hunter

Page 14-15: Counting, My Family
Pages 16-17: Puzzles

18-19, Rocketship, Barn animals (finger puppets)

20-21: Make a Face

Pages 22-23: Alphabet Page
Page 24: Monster at the end of this book...

But the most exciting part of it all was giving it to my nephews (ok, so they are a bit young to even use them, but their parent's reactions were worth all the blood and sweat that went into these things!)

Danelle checking out the book, as you can see the nephew was busy doing something else, cause he didn't make it into the picture! :)

Niki checking out V's book, he wasn't quite mobile yet, soooo... he was a "captive audience"! :)
Anyhow, this was a great learning experience, and I am glad that I got the figure it out step by step and learn how to sew. I figure that now I can pretty much sew anything I put my mind to sewing after this. :) Thanks to my loving husband who put up with the hours it took to complete this project, not to mention the funding of it! (and he didn't even murmur a word about it!! what a great guy! :))
