Hand Made Quiet Book

Geesh! I thought I would never get this thing done!! I started working on a "quiet book" for Presley back in August of 2012 and was doing everything by hand. Drawing my own patterns, hand cutting and sewing everything...... It was a very slow process. And then I got the shock/surprise of finding out I was pregnant, and I completely forgot about this book. (well I didn't forget, I just couldn't think about pulling it all out and working on it)
 So for 5 months it just sat there in my craft room, until I finally got the courage to pull it out and try to get it done. Presley inspired me to try again by being very restless and hard to entertain at church.
 I decided to give myself a bit of break and used my sewing machine on the edges of the pages. But most everything was sewn by hand.
 Josh hated when I would work on this thing because I had to have so many different crafty items out and it made a big mess.
 In the end I am very happy with how it turned out! I had a hard time letting Presley play with it because I spent so much time making it, I was worried she would destroy it right away lol.
It's survived so far so that's good!
(This button page is her favorite for some reason.)

 I love my little animals I made! I think the elephant is super cute!!
 I feel so relieved that it's done! And I now know how hard and time consuming it is so I doubt I will ever try to attempt to make another, lol. I hope Presley appreciates it! ;)
