Anyone into making these? I had never heard of quiet books until I made a busy board for my 1 year old, then had the bright idea of making a "fabric busy board" and discovered that's basically what quiet books are.
And they're so cool! There's so many good ideas online, they seem to have been perfected by Mormon mom bloggers
So I'm in the process of making more of a board/wall hanging thing rather than a book, it's Nintendo themed so there'll be elements from a bunch of our favourite games, combined with zips and buttons and studs and stuff. Like a platformer level built out of fabric and craft supplies
And since I'm sure I'll have a bunch of felt left over, I'm keen to make some little toys later, any ideas? Ooh and does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with felt scraps? I have a huge bag of tiny pieces already!

We live Mario Bros here!
I haven't perfected the art of craft (I'm not detail oriented enough) buy my Mum makes amazing quiet books for her grand kids. My boys got her first ones when they turned 1. They were fantastic 6 years ago but she is even better now. She is working on one for dd's 2nd birthday in a few weeks. I cannot wait to see it!
Have you seen all the ideas on Pinterest?

I finally finished a quiet book for DS1 a few days ago - only 18 months or so after I started it! I've used a mix of fabric pages, with some felt and some fabric for the activities.
My favourite is the Mr Potatohead dress-up page - it was a lot of fun coming up with ridiculous ears/hats/arms etc.
After putting so much work into it, I'm almost afraid to give it to DS now! Maybe for his 2nd birthday?

I love the food assembly pages, like build a sandwich or icecream, but I think I'll have to wait for project #2 to incorporate those.
I also find the felt bible stories kind of cute and funny, they gave me the idea to make a science themed quiet book later on too (since science is our faith?)
Your children sound very lucky! I wasn't sure if they were really a 'thing' in Australia or if it were more American.
