Quiet Book Tutorial

I am so flattered! Thanks for liking for my quiet book. I must be honest. This is a lot of work, but so worth it. This is the quiet book your kids will want to give to their kids. It is built to last and fun to make. 
I know I don't have to do a tutorial on the quiet book since it was the audition project but I thought I would give you the pattern pieces so you can make your own. I'll work on a tutorial and get it out at some future date, but for now, these will have to do.

Supply List
Exterior and Assembly
1/2 yard green (or the color of your choice) canvas
1/2 yard decorative exterior fabric
1 Large button for exterior
1 sheet of pattern making plastic (look in the quilting section at the fabric store)
2 large clipable rings
16 silver eyelets
8 fat quarters of coordinating fabrics. You will use these for all of the pages and will cut most of the pattern pieces out of these.
