I have taken a break from making my own quiet book, and I have joined a quiet book exchange. Each member makes 15 of a specific page. We all do a different page, and then exchange so we have a complete book. I love the efficiency of this method.
I am doing a laundry page with little clothespins, and a basket, and I am going to work with a friend who will do a felt doll page, and some of the clothes. I thought I would post the process of weaving the felt for the basket. I learned this trick from the pie-making page of my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, so you can do this with felt, or pie crust.
Now, fold back (to the left) the strips that are underneath your first vertical strip.
Then place your next vertical strip next to your first one, snugging it as close as you can.
Replace the strips you folded back earlier.
Now fold back the strips that are underneath vertical strip 2.
And place vertical strip 3.
Replace the horizontals again.
Stabilize with your best friend, Pellon.
And place on your page. (Or pie.) You did it! I’ll post a picture of my page when it is done. My mini-clothes pins are so cute. I can’t wait to make some little felt clothes to pin. You can get the pins on Amazon.com or from a craft store. The shipping on Amazon made them about twice as expensive as my local store, Roberts.
