NOTE: When I created the quiet book, I completed all the pages and then sewed them together. That means that each of the pages has about 1/2 inch on three sides that will “disappear” when sewn to the next page. The fourth side will be used for binding the book together. You can see the finished book here. The instructions for the binding will be in a future post.

– felt (light purple, dark purple, cream)
– tiny hair clips
1. Trim the background light purple felt so it is 10 inches by 8 1/2 inches (this will be the standard size for all the pages in this quiet book).
3. Add the hair. I never would have known how to do this until I found some instructions on this page. The instructions were enough to help me figure it out, but I wanted to add some extra detail sharing what I leaned in the process. 🙂
Cut about 21 strands of yarn that are 17 inches long. Place over the doll’s head as shown in the picture. (Don’t mind the little chunk taken out of the corner of the purple. When I made this page I trimmed it after these steps. The little chunk is actually from where I cut out the dress top.)
Cut the ribbon to 8 1/2 inches and sew in place on each side. I’d also recommend sewing a few stitches in the middle of the ribbon just to anchor it in place.
I added some “pearls” to the centers of the flowers for fun. I had bought these pearls from Stampin’ Up! years ago, but probably most craft stores would have something you could use.
Binding instructions for my book will be in a future post!
My daughter is enjoying this page and often brings me the clips to put in her hair. It makes me smile.
