Rapunzel and Button Flowers Quiet Book Pages August 20, 2014 – Posted in: quiet book, sewing
Something old. Something new.
I did a button flower page on Grace’s book HERE, but the Rapunzel page is new. Naomi really likes princesses, but ironically hates having her own hair brushed. I just thought of that now. Um. Oh well.
I saw the tower Rapunzel page idea on Pinterest- several different versions I mushed together so no specific link. I used cotton yarn to make the hair and stitched it onto the background (a scrap of darker brown fused onto the blue backing.) Then, I fused the tower and the roof onto the page and used a zig zag stitch all the way around- especially the window.
I sewed a strip of green to the bottom to make some grass and add some dimension.
The tree makes a nice little storage pocket. I fused and zig zagged the trunk onto the edge, then made a treetop pocket to hold all of the little hair clips and some more ribbons.
The button flower page is just about the same as the last one, but I got lazy and skipped the leaves and only made three flowers.
They are still reversible.
So that wraps things up! I plan on making another quiet book very soon and I have some cute ideas for that one. Thanks for reading along and if you want to see the rest of the pages in the series you can click HERE.
