You have now completed this Essential Guide to Quiet Books, which means you know a lot more than I did when I first started and should be able to create your first quiet book faster and with (almost) no mistakes.
Simply by applying everything you learned in this Guide, getting the free patterns I created for you, and following my step-by-step tutorials, you’ve already saved a lot of time and energy.
So what’s next?
You now have the theoretical knowledge of creating a quiet book and a solid understanding of shortcuts and potential mistakes you can avoid.
But only reading won’t create your quiet book.
I tried to help you out as much as I can to make the hard part less hard, and I hope I achieved this with this Guide. And now it’s up to you to finish this process, and there are two ways you can do it.
The first option is you take your knowledge and start searching and ordering all the materials you need – from cotton fabric, quality stiff felt, fusible interfacing and fleece, and everything else you might need.
Then tracing all the big and small parts of patterns on stiff felt, and cutting the pieces out of felt. Preparing the fabric pages for activities, choosing and preparing binding materials, and so on.
This is where the “fun” begins. The sewing/gluing part is indeed relaxing and fun, but the whole preparation is not. Especially cutting, which can also be quite painful.
As I already said I try to make creating quiet books easier for you, so you won’t have to go through all the frustrations I had, and your learning curve can be shorter.
To help you skip the boring and painful part, and make creating quiet books ever easier, I created pre-cut quiet book DIY kits with everything you need. All the materials have been tested for you, everything already cut and ready for you to start sewing/gluing.
You can even get a custom DIY quiet book kit and select the activities you want to have in a quiet book.

PS: If you have an activity idea and don’t see it in my patterns and shop, let me know, and I’ll try to create it.
