Farm Animals Quiet Book Page


On our little farm, spring means lots of new baby animals. I wanted to reflect that in the spring quiet book, too. I came up with this little sunset farm scene and tried out some different applique techniques. I hand embroidered the fence and some details, then sewed on the barn.

The barn doors are held shut with a round button and a loop of narrow elastic. Inside the barn are some "animal pens" made of little pockets. Those store tiny animals that I cut from a fat quarter print fused to backing fabric. (I also used them to make memory cards in THIS book.)
I was going to make felt animals, but this was easier and faster. They are cute and she has fun with them.


The top of the barn has yellow ribbon "straw" and the roof is made of white grosgrain ribbon.
I was going to add even more details, like a mud pit for the pig, but I stopped myself because I wanted to finish the book.


I can't believe these are the first farm pages I have done!
