I made some Quiet Books for three of the youngest grandkids.

Rather generic-lookin', isn't it?

I decided to change mine up from the one in the pattern. I made the pages out of a big length of muslin I had on hand. I used some of the ideas, changed some of them, and added some completely off-beat ones. [Hi Bob! =^-^= ]
