Quiet Book Tutorial- Car Page
You will need:
a sheet of felt to serve as a background- I used green so that it would represent grass
most of a sheet of black felt for the road
Scraps of other colors to make your buildings and such
I measured my roads to be the length of the sheet of felt and two inches wide. I sewed them in the angle I wanted and then added the yellow paint lines. The house/hospital are 3 inch squares which I then embellished according to which building it was.
Time Commitment- I think this whole page only took me about 20 minutes and that includes cutting time. It is an easy page and a good one to start with if you are a timid sewer.
What would I change if I were to do it again- I would make it two pages so there would be more space to race the cars. I have a wonderful idea about this that I get to share soon hopefully!
