Family Tree Page Quiet Book Tutorial
I did 12 pages for my Quiet Book. Most of them are self-explanatory so I didn't do a tutorial.
However, I really had a lot of fun making my Family Tree page, so I made this tutorial.
I got the idea for this tree from A Million Little Things.
1. Fabric (3 different green patterns, and one brown pattern)
3. Felt (green and red)
6. Small pictures of your family
STEP ONE: Cut out the fabrics to make the background of page.
Cut out the shape for the tree trunk.
STEP TWO: Cut out all the leaves to make the top of the tree.
STEP THREE: Sew down the background green fabrics.
STEP FOUR: Sew on the brown tree trunk.
While sewing down leave a gap open to fill with a little cotton. Then continue sewing the tree trunk down.
STEP SIX: Place and pin leaves onto felt, for the top of the tree.
Cut out the felt for the treetop shape.
STEP SEVEN: Sew leaves onto felt, going around each leaf.
Trim off extra felt.
When completed, sew tree leaves onto page. Sew around the bottom (only half way).
STEP EIGHT: Cut out felt apples.
Cut out small pictures.
Glue pictures onto felt.
Place vinyl on top of apple.
STEP NINE: Sew vinyl onto apple.
It was really hard to sew the vinyl onto felt, so I had to do most of the work with the hand knob.
Trim off extra vinyl.
STEP TEN: Decide where the apples should go.
Glue one dot for each velcro piece.
STEP ELEVEN: Place glue on the back of apples.
Place one velcro piece for each.
STEP TWELVE: Place velcro in place to close the tree pocket.
When not in use apples can stay behind the tree.
STEP THIRTEEN: Place apples around tree.
This is how to make the Family Tree page.
Tomorrow I'll be sharing how to bind all the pages.
