And so work on the quiet book continues. I am trying to do about a page a week, until I run out of ideas and/or steam and then I'll take a break. Anyway, I did two pretty simple pages in these last two weeks. First, the clock:
This is another idea I took from the book my mama made. I used a button instead of a brad and I put interfacing behind the clock hands to make them sturdier. The numbers I did with puff paint. Can you tell I freehanded them?? Ha.
I also did this zipper page:
I got the idea from this book of quiet book ideas. I made a point of getting zippers with big pulls, which limited my selection but I like how coordinated it turned out. I put fabric behind them, just to give it some pizzazz. But did I succeed in sewing all the fabric down under the zipper? Well...no. So I have to fix that later. This was my first time doing zippers...
...and luckily no one will see the backside when the book is done.
