Two years ago, I sewed quiet books for my girls and my niece for Christmas. It was quite an undertaking, but well worth the results. I did a very brief post about the books back then, which you can read here if you like. After a little push from a dear reader, I have decided to do a quiet book sew along this holiday season for anyone who would like to make a special keepsake for their little girl. I’ve been putting in some hours making a new version of the quiet books, with a consistent color scheme throughout. It’s a shabby chic-ish look and very sweet. I promise that I will work on a boy version someday, but it’s just not going to happen this year.
The sew along will begin December 9 and we will make a cloth book with six activities including hair braiding, snapping flowers, a velcro laundry line, and paper dolls. I am offering a limited number of quiet book kits for sale that will include all the materials and patterns to follow along and assemble one complete quiet book. I will also offer a pdf download for my original shape patterns only. You can definitely follow along without the kit or patterns and make your own shapes. There is one spread with fabric paper dolls that require that particular fabric; the remaining activities could be done with any fabric you choose.
I’m excited to share my version of this keepsake with you and I hope you’ll join me making this timeless gift! So….who’s in?
Updated 6/1/12: Kits and pdf patterns are currently available for purchase. Please email Stef at [email protected]. Kits are $50 + shipping. PDF patterns are $6. Thank you!

Thank you ssso much for sharing all this.
I love your channel. Could you please provide me the link for the doll fabric?
I just found your blog and I will be making some of the items you have made.
Unfortunately, since these were made several years ago, I don’t have a current link to purchase the doll fabric. You might try searching on etsy or just on the web in general! Good luck!

I purchased your “Dolls and Clothes Kit plus shape templates”, but I haven’t received anything. Is there something additional that I need to do?
I have not done a web sew along before so I will be a novice. I am so looking forward to it.Thank you for sharing with us.
The templates ARE included in the complete kit. Dolls and clothes are included in the kit or can be purchased without the rest of the kit. There is a button added in the post.Thanks!
