Idea Proposal: Quiet Book

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR VOLUNTEERING!!  I THINK WE ARE SET WITH THE # OF PEOPLE INTERESTED- SO, I'M CLOSING THIS PROJECT UP!

A little over a year ago my wonderful sisters and cousins all participated in a quiet book swap.  Me, being an idiot, opted not to participate since I thought, 'I don't have kids'.  Well one day soon, I will.  I should have anticipated that and joined in, but I didn't.  

This brings us to the present day.  I now want a quiet book.  I would like to do it with the help of other talented people WHO CAN SEW.  

So, if you feel this is something you want to participate, please leave a comment :)  Each participant will mass-produce one page (maybe 2 depending on how many we get).  Each page will involve a different 'activity' like lacing, buttons, braiding, tieing, buckling, zipping, telling time, snapping, pockets, etc.  

There are MANY more details to be discussed, but for right now I just want an idea of who wants to participate.  Below are some photos from the book I mentioned previously for you to get excited about making/having one!


Isn't it so cool?  Who wouldn't want one?!

I totally want a quiet book! This is such a great idea. I'm not an amazing sewer, but I think I could handle this! I'm going to post a link to your blog to try and get more people!
