I'm Crafty Like That

So my sister and I had this great idea to make out kiddos quiet books for Christmas....no thanks to Pinterest.  We even made a little jaunt down to Montana to get some cheapo fabric and supplies.  We stayed up allllllll night the first night drawing, tracing and cutting everything out.  A little bit more work than we had aniticipated I think.  Then Shayla went back to Edmonton, and the plan was we would finish them separately.  HAHA  ya right.  There's no way I was assembling that thing without Shayla.  So alas, just days before Christmas we assembled the lovely books.....after Shayla explained to me about three times how to do it.  My brain just doesn't compute things like that.  That's why we're such a good sewing team!!  I'm the creative side and she's the technical side.  We should start a business. Hey Shay?!  Anyway, I think they turned out pretty darn cute.  Shayla has a couple different pages because her kiddo is a girl, but lots of them are the same.  I'm so glad we did it, even if they're not super interested in them right now.  Balian mostly just loves to pull all the velcro objects off and lose them.  Oh well.  I think they're super cute and totally worth all the time. 

The barn yard and tool box are my favorites I think. There is a pig finger puppet for the barnyard as well, but it's currently MIA.   And yes, I still haven't put eyes on the alligator.  I'm sure I'll get around to it someday.  Feel free to pin my awesome quiet book on pinterest....because it's just that awesome!! haha
