Felt Quiet Book

for my niece's 1st birthday i wanted to do something special. now that we live 6 hours away i wanted to make sure she knew how much we love her, so i made this quiet book. i was inspired by this quiet book, which is way more extensive and creative. i decided to start small with my first one so i didn't overwhelm myself.

the fish page was inspired by this tutorial for aquarium magnets. it comes with a template and instructions and the fish are super cute. i have plans to make my kids shower curtain look like an aquarium and i have it almost completed. its taking me forever because i only get to work on it a little at a time. someday....
i think the house is my favorite. i don't know if you can tell by the pictures but i pleated the curtains to make them look drawn, and i love the material. just a little detail that makes me happy. i wanted to cut out a little cat to put behind the door but i totally spazzed.

i will probably have to make another postcard since she will probably eat this one to death, if i had more time i would have laminated it. next time! hopefully she loves it as much as i do!
