Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book: Snow White Pages FREE Pattern and Tutorial

It has been WAY too long since I’ve posted a tutorial for my Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book.  Today I’m going to show two pages at once since they aren’t too complicated.  So here are the patterns and instructions for the Snow White pages of the book.

Don’t forget to check out my completed Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book!

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.

THESE PATTERNS ARE FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY AND NOT FOR SALE.  YOU MAY NOT MAKE ITEMS FOR SALE OR PROFIT.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THESE QUIET BOOK PAGES, PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT BY LINKING TO MY PAGE.

Materials:

– felt (light gray, dark gray, gold, brown, sparkly white, red)

– beads (15 in total for the counting part; small ones for the trolley)

– ribbon

– fabric paint (brown, silver)

– glue

– buttons (2 for the wheels on the trolley)

– non-breakable mirror (I got mine from a baby toy that I found at Value Village; any shape will work)

– Counting Page Pattern

Instructions:

1. I’ll first show the mirror page.  Trim the background light gray 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).

IMG_37442. To make the mirror frame, I traced the mirror onto a piece of paper.  Then I drew a line on the inside of the circle so that it would overlap with the mirror when cut out of felt.  I made the frame about 1/2 inch thick.  Draw a crown on paper for your pattern as well.  Cut out the pieces from the felt.

 

 

IMG_37453. Glue the mirror onto the felt, slightly to the left so that it will be in the centre of the finished page.

 

 

 

 

IMG_37464. Glue the gold frame over top of the mirror.  I placed glue so that it would stick to the background as well as the mirror.

 

 

 

 

IMG_37475. Glue on the red crown at the top of the mirror.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_37796. Finally, paint on the pattern with the brown fabric paint.  If you look closely you’ll notice that I did more loops on one side than the other, but I don’t think my daughter has noticed.  And the page is done!

 

 

 

7. Sadly, I have lost the pictures for the steps for the counting page due to keyboard smashing by my daughter.  😦  (Check out this post to read the details).  However, I will still write down the steps and the pattern is given above.

Trim the background light gray 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).

8. Cut the “Cave” out of dark gray and position on the right side of the background felt.  Don’t sew it down yet.

9. Cut five ribbon pieces and pin in place, under the dark gray cave.  Move the cave piece out of the way and sew the ribbon on one side.  String the beads on the ribbons as shown in the finished page.

10. Pull the ribbon tight, pin in place, and sew the opposite end.  If you find that the ribbons are droopy, simply pull it a little tighter and resew.  Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect.

11. Reposition the cave piece and sew in place.  Using the sliver fabric paint, write the numbers as shown.

12. Cut the “Pile of Jewels” from sparkly white and sew in place on the bottom right-hand corner.

13. Cut out the “Trolley” and sew in place as shown.  Using brown fabric paint, paint on the details of the trolley.

14. Sew on small beads, “filling” the trolley with jewels.

15. Sew on the buttons to make the wheels of the trolley.  And you are done!

 

I hope you have fun making these pages.  I’d love to hear how yours turned out!

Binding instructions will be in a future post!

Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book: Tangled Satchel Page

 

IMG_4103

This page was inspired by a quiet book page I found through Pinterest.  I think it is a great addition to my Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book.

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.

THESE PATTERNS ARE FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY AND NOT FOR SALE.  YOU MAY NOT MAKE ITEMS FOR SALE OR PROFIT.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THESE PAGES, PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT BY LINKING TO MY PAGE.

Materials:

– felt (light purple, dark purple, dark brown, black, dark gray, gold, sparkly white)

– ribbon

– thread

– cardboard

– glue

– fabric paint or glitter glue (optional)

– Satchel Page Pattern

Instructions:

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).

IMG_34112. Cut out the pan felt pieces.  There should be two black pans and one dark gray circle.  Glue the circle on one of the pans as shown in the picture.

 

 

 

 

IMG_3423Turn the pan over and glue a 9 inch piece of ribbon to the back of the handle.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3425Cut out the cardboard piece using the same pattern, but then trim it so that it is slightly smaller than the felt.  Glue it to the back of the pan.

 

 

 

 

IMG_3428Glue the second black pan felt over top of the cardboard.  Let it dry completely.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_34153. Cut out the sun scarf pieces.  There should be two dark purple rectangles and one gold sun.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_3429Repeat the steps above to add the ribbon and cardboard to the sun scarf.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_34144. Cut out the pieces for the crown.  There should be two gold pieces, two small jewels, and one large jewel.  Glue the pieces together as shown, repeating the steps above to add the cardboard and ribbon.  I just added cardboard to the gold section as the sparkly white jewels were cut from a stiffened piece of felt.

Optional: add some extra bling using a glitter glue or fabric paint.

 

IMG_34445. Cut out the satchel pieces.  Pin the large satchel piece to the page.  It should be closer to one side than the other as one side will be used for binding the book.  In the picture the pins on the bottom are marking where it will fold.  Pin the satchel contents in place as shown in the picture.

 

 

IMG_3445Fold the satchel closed and pin in place.  Sew around all four sides, close to the edge of the satchel.  Move the satchel contents when necessary.

 

 

 

Pin the satchel flap and sew in place on the top edge only.  Carefully stuff the contents into the pouch and the page is complete!  🙂

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  I’d love to hear how your page turned out!

The binding instructions will be coming in a future post!

Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book: Cinderella Clock Page Pattern and Tutorial

This was one of the first pages that I completed for my Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book.  I figured I’d start with something relatively simple to build up my confidence.  Haha!

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.

THESE PATTERNS ARE FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY AND NOT FOR SALE.  YOU MAY NOT MAKE ITEMS FOR SALE OR PROFIT.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THESE QUIET BOOK PAGES, PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT BY LINKING TO MY PAGE.

Materials:

– felt (navy blue, light gray, dark gray, white)

– button

– fabric paint

– thread

– glue

– Clock Page Pattern

Instructions:

1. Trim the background navy blue 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).

IMG_34062. Cut out the clock face.  Using fabric paint, write the numbers 1 through 12 as seen on a clock face.  (Note: you can also do this step later if you want to attach the clock center by sewing instead of gluing.)

 

 

 

IMG_34163. Sewing the clock bottom to the background page: Sew a line 3/8 of an inch on the bottom side of the shape and close to the edge for the other three sides as seen in the picture.  The piece should be closer to one side of the page as the other side will be used for the binding of the book.

 

 

 

IMG_34184. Sew on the clock back and then the clock top piece.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_34205. Once the fabric paint is dry, glue the clock face to the clock back.  (If you decided to sew the clock face on instead of glue, sew it in place then use the fabric paint to write the numbers.)

 

 

 

 

IMG_34216. Prep the clock hands.  Each clock hand requires a button hole.  Check your sewing machine’s instruction manual for how to sew a button hole.  Since I’m not a pro at making button holes, I decided to make the hole first and then cut out the hands.  You can see from the picture that it took me a few tries to get it right!  Haha!

 

 

IMG_34387. Sew on the button in the center of the clock face and loop the clock arms over it.  And you’re done!

Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book: Beauty and the Beast Castle Tutorial

IMG_4096

Tale as old as time…Song as old as rhyme…Beauty and the Beast.  I love this movie!  It’s a lovely story and I think that the Beauty and the Beast pages are the ones that I’m the most proud of so even though they aren’t the first pages in the completed book I’m sharing them first.  🙂

I hope you enjoy this tutorial.  Don’t forget to take a look at the complete Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book!

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.

THESE PATTERNS ARE FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY AND NOT FOR SALE.  YOU MAY NOT MAKE ITEMS FOR SALE OR PROFIT.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THESE QUIET BOOK PAGES, PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT BY LINKING TO MY PAGE.

Materials:

  • Felt (dark blue, dark gray, light gray, gold, red)
  • Zipper (about 4 inches)
  • Fabric Paint (I used brown and silver)
  • Fabric Glue
  • Cellophane
  • Castle Page Pattern

Instructions:

1. Trim the background dark blue 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).

IMG_36022. Cut out the Ballroom and Rug pieces.  Sew them onto the background felt.  I sewed the ballroom only around the outside edges and then glued the inside “walls”, but they aren’t staying stuck so I’d recommend that you sew around the windows too.  I glued the rug in place, but again, would sew it in place if I were to make this page again.  Once they are sewn in place, use fabric paint to draw the corners of the walls and the pattern on the rug.  Let dry completely!  NOTE: I ACCIDENTALLY PUT EVERYTHING ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PAGE INSTEAD OF THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PAGE!  THIS ONLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE IF YOU WANT THE CASTLE PAGE TO BE ON THE LEFT SIDE.

IMG_35973. Cut out the door pieces: two felt and one cellophane for each door.  The cellophane will need to be trimmed in order to fit properly.

 

 

 

 

IMG_3598

Sandwich the cellophane in between the two felt pieces and sew along the straight edges.

Repeat with the other door.

 

 

 

 

IMG_36004. Pin and sew the zipper to the long straight edges of the doors.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_36035. Place the “closed” doors over the ballroom and pin in place.  Place the castle piece over the doors so that it is overlapping the curved edges of the doors.  Sew in place.  I sewed along the doors and then up the sides and on the bottom.  I glued the top in place, but it could easily be sew instead.  HINT: use lots of pins to hold everything in place.  And if it ends up a little crooked like mine did, remind yourself that it is for a child and she won’t mind too much.  🙂

 

IMG_36076. Sew the Towers to the sides of the castle.  They will overlap a little bit.  I sewed around all four edges.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_36087. Glue or sew the roof pieces and window pieces in place.

 

 

 

 

 

8. To make the Beauty and the Beast character piece, I found a colouring page through a Google search and printed it out.  I then traced it onto Shrinky Dink plastic and coloured it.  It was a great excuse to buy that pack of permanent markers I was eyeing.  🙂  Following the Shrinky Dink instructions I sized the picture so that it would be the correct size once shrunk.  I punched three holes before shrinking it so that I could sew it in place.  I also painted a layer of clear top coat nail polish over it so that the colours wouldn’t scratch off.  (The trick with the nail polish is to let it drip on so that there is a thick layer instead of painting it on, otherwise the ink might smear.)  Sew in place and you are done!

The bottom of the page will be part of the seam allowance for completing the book so it will not show.  (Take a look at the finished page at the top of this post again).  I will be sharing the instructions for completing the book in a future post.  If you don’t want to complete the book as I did then simply trim that seam allowance part off.  I hope that makes sense!

I’d love to hear how your Castle page turns out!  Happy Crafting!

 

Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book

I am SO excited with how my Disney Princess Inspired Quiet Book turned out!  It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too!

I did a fair amount of searching for patterns on Pinterest, and I got a couple ideas for pages, but most of these pages are my own design (although not necessarily my own artwork).  🙂

I’ll be posting the patterns for most of these pages over the next few weeks so keep checking back.  In the meantime, here is a closer look at each of the pages.

The first page is “Cinderella”.  There is a magnet inside the dress and under the doll.  The idea is to dress Cinderella for the ball.

Second princess page is “Sleeping Beauty”.  This is my daughter’s favourite page at the moment.  It is a search and find page.  The characters are made from Shrinky Dink plastic.

“Snow White” is next.  The Magic Mirror (made from a mirror I found from a used toy).  The right page is the Dwarves’ mine.

IMG_4091

I’m very proud of the “Beauty and the Beast” pages.  The castle doors have cellophane in them to make them crinkle when touched.  Belle and the Beast are made from Shrinky Dink plastic.  The right page has the magic rose.  The petals “fall” off.

“The Little Mermaid”  These pages used many pictures I found on the internet printed and coloured on Shrinky Dink plastic.  On the left is a marble maze and on the right is an I Spy page.

“Tangled” is next.  These two pages were inspired by ones I found on Pinterest.  I will be sharing the links to the pages in my tutorials along with my instructions for how I completed the pages.

IMG_4102

Tangled – Satchel (left); Hair (right) – These were inspired by pages I found through Pinterest. Links will be provided in the tutorials.

IMG_4103IMG_4104

The final pages are “Frozen”.  Match the Snowflakes and Build a Snowman.  The Elsa doll is not my original creation so I can’t share that part, but I will share the pattern and instructions for the other parts.  Olaf was made using a pattern I found free online and I’ll include a link in that post as well.

IMG_4107IMG_4109There you have it!  It was a lot of work, but I’m super happy with how it turned out and my daughter (who will be one on June 3rd) LOVES it!

Please note that some of these pages involved the use of pictures I found on the internet through Google searches.  I do not claim those pictures as my own.  Also, the Cinderella doll and Elsa doll were created based on someone else’s pattern so I can’t share those either.  However, I will be sharing the pattern pieces and assembly instructions for the rest of the pages!  🙂

I’ll also be sharing how to make the cover and put it all together.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Creating!
