Quiet Book with Numbers

I love to make quiet books. It's a challenge. This one is a custom order for  a client who wants a book with numbers from 1 to 10. I worked 30 hours to made it.

In my vision, it's not a simple quiet book. You can make different activities to teach your kids to count, to sing, to tell short stories. 
Page 1 - You can talk about night and day, about nocturnal animals and sing Twinkle, Twinkle... Place the star inside the cloud pocket and talk about inside and outside. 


 Page 2 - Talk about ducklings, their environment, sing Five little ducks ... for Two Little Ducks ... went swimming one day / Over the hill and far away ... Count the objects from the page: 2 butterflies, 2 leaves, 2 circles for sun.
Page 3 - Sing Three little snowmen, talk about winter time, count the clouds. Invent a short story about the snowmen.


Page 4 - Talk about fall, apples and healthy food. invent a short song. Play inside and outside game moving the apples in the pocket.
Page 5 - Five little fish - Play I spy for choosing the colors.


Page 6 - Pizza time! You can move the slices, put them together one by one, count them.
Page 7 - Match the colors using the balloons. Talk about down and high and about rainbow colors.


Page 8 - Eight singing birds sitting on 2 branches. Count the birds and the leaves.
Page 9 - In the rabbit garden - Talk about rabbits, their food, and play with the carrots, moving them in the holes. Invent a short story and count the carrots.


Page 10 - Count the dots on the ladybug and teach your kids about a zipper. You can keep the numbers in this pocket. 


I decide to attach a ribbon to every small piece, but not to the numbers. You decide to use the numbers. Unbind the pages to play with them separately.  This book is not suitable for kids under 3. Supervise your kids while playing with it.

Penguin outfit from Tshirts

Recycling idea: My penguin outfit made from 2 Tshirts. My 8 years daughter needed a penguin outfit for her performance in a winter show. I crocheted the hat and I made the penguin belly from 2 Tshirts.


The hat: a crochet black beanie with ear flaps, 2 big white circles and 2 black small circles for eyes and an orange beak. 






The belly: one black Tshirt, one smaller white Tshirt, orange felt for feet.


The white Tshirt is smaller that the black one and my daughter doesn't wear it. But I didn't want to cut it. I folded it bringing the edges inside to look like a white penguin belly and I fixed it with pins. The feet are cut from orange felt.


Then I sewed them.


The penguin was very happy!

Frozen name banner for girl room

I made another Frozen inspired banner for a little girl. I used colorful felt in assorted colors. Every letter is almost 4.13 inches (10.5 cm ). I made an Elsa and an Olaf for the ends of the banner.


It can be a great decoration in a girl's room or a birthday party banner. Hang it on the wall or on the door. 

You can buy a personalized one, visit My Etsy Shop

Cute little snowman from felt

Cute little snowman, Olaf from Frozen. I made a statistic for it: 6 types of felt, polyfill, 6 kinds of threads, 2 kinds of beads, scissors, 3 hours.


Every part is carefully cut from felt. The snowman is sew in layers, piece by pieces with assorted threads. 
It could be a Christmas ornament or a winter decoration for your kids room. I used it for a banner with a name.

Crochet Bear Bag

My 8 years daughter loves Teddy Bears. I made this bag thinking at her love for the bears. It's an easy project. You can buy it in My Ravelry Store or in My Craftsy Store. Use what kind of yarn you want and attach a contrasting flower. Don't sew the bag between the ears, leave a space so your girl can put some stuff inside.


Because the first one was a gift for a little girl, I had to make another one for my daughter and I used light brown yarn for the bear and I attached a pink bow.


If you have any question, leave a message.
