Joan's Construction Page

It's been a while, but you might remember Joan's Refrigerator quiet book page that post on the blog a few months ago. This is another quiet book page that she's made; it features three different kind of construction machines - a dump truck, a scooper, and a wrecking ball, all hiding behind mounds of dirt:


What's your name? Describe yourself in one sentence. 
I’m Gramma to 2 boys, one is 2 years old, the other 5 months old, been sewing for 60 years.

Did you use any templates?
The above I think is original – maybe not but our baby loves trucks.

How did you bind your quiet book?
We use shower curtain rings to change things up.

What material are the pages made out of? What other materials did you use? 
Had a tiny bit of truck fabric left from making a pair of jammies. The rest is felt. Edge is 2 layers of grosgrain ribbon which has a pattern of tools, poked 3 holes for shower curtain ring.

How much did all the supplies cost you?
Cost if purchased would be about $2.

Joan's advice for making a quiet book is "Consider having a quiet book party. Share the fabrics, share the glue, share the laughs. Everyone bring 4 pieces of felt 4/$1 – one roll random ribbon $2 per roll, one small Elmer’s Glue $1, one bag Lorna Dunes (Those would be for me) $2. Total investment $6. And you should walk out with 4 pages each and a happy tummy."

Thank you so much for sharing your quiet book pages with us, Joan!
