I think this tutorial is great for moms who would love to make a quiet book but can’t sew and I hope that what ever your skill level you find some useful ideas in the page tutorials below!

  1. Have you by chance tried machine washing your book? I’m wondering if washed in cold water in a delicates bag and then hung up to dry if it would hold together well and for a long time.

    Thanks!

    • I have actually washed it twice already! The video I made was after a year of use and a wash. The items held together well and did not part from their hot glue.

  2. Hi, Nicolette! I am in the process of making this quiet book for my 2 year old and I just wanted to send a big THANK YOU. I am one of those moms with no sewing machine and an industrial sized glue gun. I never thought I could make a quiet book and was looking into buying one when I saw your blog on it. I have followed your ideas for the most part, adding or eliminating pages to make it more customized to my baby girl, but I know I could not have done it without your guidance. I am making this book because I am expecting another baby girl in one month and thought this would be a great gift for becoming a big sister. Plus it is a whole book of activities we can do together even though I might not be able to do more active/messy things for a short time.
    Overall, your blog, emails, everything you do, is amazing and I am learning and growing with your guidance. Thank you again for helping all us moms be better than we thought we could be.

  3. how do you make sure the velcro isn’t pulled of the fabric when kids tear the fabric items out of the book? I can imagine that, because of the type of fabric, the glue won’t hold it properly for much longer than 3 uses. Should I use super glue for the velcro?

    • On each page where I explain in detail HOW to make the book you will see in the instructions that I use hot glue on the velcro dots as well. That glue it comes with is for smooth surfaces. It will not hold on felt. Use hot glue

  4. Hi,
    This looks fun, but I am confused on how the loose felt parts stick to the pages? Do we need to spray them with some sort of adhesive?
    Thanks,
    Angie

  5. I just LOVE this idea! I have a very cheap sewing machine that would never make it through felt–i love that you use a hot glue gun (definitely have one of those!) My daughter turned two last month and I think this would be such a great activity for her. Pinning this and sharing it! THANK YOU! 🙂

  6. I am looking forward to the birth of my first great-grandchild. I wanted something to make for him that would be special. This sounds perfect and would be easy and interesting to make. Thank you.

  7. I want to make one of these for my daughter and a friend’s daughter. Please could you tell me the dimensions?

  8. Does the felt stay together with the hot glue? I think this is such and awesome idea and I plan on making one for my daughter for Christmas as well as for her cousins.

  9. This is wonderful! My daughter is 3 1/2 and my other is 6. I’m making one of these right now (but still need a few more colours of felt) As per your instructions in making the complete book….do you make each single page and glue them together so they are double thickness…or are they single thickness and one page can hold 2 activities on each side?

  10. Hi there! I am so excited to make this for my daughter. She is 18 months old, and when her older brother sits down for ‘school’ she wants something to do too, and I think this is perfect!! However, living in a very small town, there is nowhere here to buy felt by the yard; we only have a walmart, and they do not carry it. My only options are either flannel by the yard or the felt pages (the same ones I will be using for the pieces like the flowers and balloons). Which would be a better option? Thank you for a wonderful, doing craft that my lo will love and for your advice!

  11. Hi these look amazing and absolutely take my hat off to you for being so talented. I’m the worst at craft but would to buy one of these for my kids – do you know anywhere that sells them ?

  12. Love it! This is the first quiet book that actually looks doable! One question- how do you put all of the pages together into a book?

  13. My son’s second birthday is coming up this autumn and your lovely post has inspired me to make one of these for him. Thank you so much!

  14. Oh my goodness… if I could hug you I would! I can. not. sew but I desperately wanted/needed to make a quiet book for my 2-year old daughter. This is so awesome…. I can’t wait to do it. Thank you soooo much!!!!

  1. […] Finally, students are put into groups to create a no sew busy book of activities that incorporate Piaget’s relational concepts.  Students can create these out of felt or construction paper but must decide on the medium as a group, prior to constructing the books.  Each student creates 5 activity pages for chosen age group. The busy books must also have a cover and title.  I like to show my students a sample of ideas via this website. […]

  2. […] You don’t need to sew for this project. Phewww I hear you say (you could sew it you really want to).
