Win this book below!
I created a pattern for a sweet and simple mini (6″ square) quiet book to share with you all. Do you have a little one you’d like to give a Valentine to?
Flowers & Chocolates
Weaving Heart & Cupcake
Book Assembly & Giveaway (this page)
Book Assembly: Fold your three double pages in half – the cover should have the designs on the outside of the folds, the other two pages should have the designs on the inside of the folds. Pin your pages together as shown. They will form a little book.
Make three passed on your sewing machine (you can also hand-sew!) – one for each double-sided page. You will be sewing three sides on each page: top, outer edge and bottom. Everything but the spine. Start at the spine at the top of the book, go down the outer edge, and across the bottom back to the spine. Repeat for all three pages. Trim up your felt edges as needed and you’re done!
If you make one of these little Valentine books, stop by the Facebook page and share some photos!
Don’t sew or don’t have time? You could win my sample book shown above!
Just leave a comment here on this blog post. I will be including one felt envelope and letter made from my mail pattern. This book is for children aged 3 and up do to small parts. We don’t want any little ones eating felt chocolates! I recommend adult supervision at all time with any younger child.
Your entry must include: a valid email address (so I can reach the winner) and who would be the recipient of the book if you won. Please use the blog’s comment form, not the Facebook form.
The nitty gritty: I have two hairy dogs, a golden and a chow, so if dog allergies are an issue, please be aware! I’ll take a lint roller to it, but they are shedding like whoa right now! And, you need to have a shipping address I can send the book to, obviously! Comments are held for approval for all first-time commenters, due to spam, but I’ll try to approve them as quickly as possible.
The contest is open to entries until around noon Eastern time on Thursday, January 19th. I will announce the winner that afternoon. I will send it off to the winner the next day if they reply promptly with their address.
It came out beautiful!
By the way, if I won, this would go to my niece, Ariadne. 🙂
I don’t know where you find the time…your work is gorgeous. I just made bean bag chairs for my daughters classroom.
Beautiful! I know that Ashlee would LOVE to have this!
ps… Thanks for all the tutorials… I love your ideas…
I would love to win this for my son James and daughter Cate…too cute. If I’m not the winner guess I’ll use the pattern to start stiching one for myself. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful ideas!
Just wanted to be sure and include my e-mail address just in case I’m lucky enough to win and you need to contact me 🙂
My son, who is turning 3 in March, loves playing with quiet books. He has a great attention span for these kinds of things! Thanks for the patterns.
This is so cute!! I’m currently doing a bunch of your pages and if it wasn’t for you my book probably wouldn’t be as awesome! Thanks so much for all your tutorials and templates! I would love to get my hands on this book for my sweet little niece!
I actually have Two little cousins this lovely creation would be perfect for .. but as there’s only One book …. I would send it to their grandma so which ever little one visited could enjoy it.
That’s if I won =)
would love to win this for my 3 yr old. is just too cute.
You are amazing!!! I love it.
I’d love to win it as well! I would totally give it to my cute little neighbor kid, Grayce… 🙂

This turned out beautifully! I’m starting to gather templates for a Quiet Book for my daughter and have enjoyed your site so much. I know my daughter would LOVE this book. Thanks for the chance to win!
Soooooooo Adorable. If I won it would go to my 2 little girls. I may just have to make another though to avoid jealousy. Thanks for the pattern. I’m asking for a sewing machine for V-day so I have an excuse to spend lots of money on fabric and felt and embellishments.
Your Quiet books are absolutely amazing. I’ve been researching a lot lately to make my own quiet books, One for my 18 month old son, Greyson, and one for my soon to be, son or daughter ( ETA march! eek!) and your blog and patterns have been a great wealth of information and inspiration. Thank-you so much for sharing everything! I would love to win the mini quiet book for my children!
This is amazing! And you just whip it up so fast- I wish I had your imagination and sewing skills! I can’t wait for you to do the cooking page. I saw where they have a felt mat you can roll out that looks like stove that would be great for travel, with felt foods or printed pictures of food.
For the contest- It would be for my son, Coleman, is just turned two. Though, it will probably be a hand-me-down since I just found out that I’m pregnant again. Yay!
You are just so talented! I would give it to my 3 year old, Kate! I am almost done with my sock page. Can’t wait to show you!
I love this book! Especially the cupcake! I am a rabid fan of cupcakes and so is my 4 year old kiddo. She would LOVE this book so much!
Love your work. I don’t sew a lick, so would be a great gift for my soon to be best friend’s 3 year old girl! Right around her birthday, too!
As usual you blow my mind away with your creative juices!
I have really enjoyed getting your blog updates to my email. I’m definately going to make a quiet book in the near future.
I would love to win this. My kids would be ecstatic! I have a question. Do you use the felt by the yard or bush the sheets of felt?
I’ve been buying them by the sheet for the best color selection. Sometimes I buy a big mixed pack when I see them on sale.

Wow so Im an idiot. Lol!! I just realized this was from last year.
This would be so cute for my grandson, Noah. I miss him so much! What a great idea!
This is super cute!!! Id love to win it for my little girl!! Thanks for the chance!!
This book is adorable! I would love to give it to my 2-year-old granddaughter. I used three of your patterns to make my first quiet book which I gave to her last Christmas. She loves it! You are very talented and are so generous to share your ideas and patterns. Thank you!
I would absolutely love to win one of these.
You are so talented. Find your site and I am in love with all of them. Been working on the kitchen set for my daughter. Thank you for sharing. You inspire me.
I have thoroughly enjoyed making my son quiet books. Thanks for making the pattern available for all to use.

I’ve made several of your pages (pirate treasure, tic TAC toe, and the breakfast cooking one among others) and everyone loves them, even adults 🙂
If I won, the book would either go to my son or to a best friend who is expecting their first child this summer.
Hi there, if I won this I would use it in the play gym and classroom settings for my children to all enjoy. I am an occupational therapy assistant and all of the children I work with love new small things to play with and we love that they can work on their fine motor skills while playing! Thank you so much for all the creative patterns!
