Preparing Two Quiet Book Pages
To start, you’ll need two completed front-side quiet book pages.
If you do not want to use two completed front-side pages, and would rather use a simple fabric back-side, simply cut a 9 x 9 inch piece of fusible interfacing. Iron the fusible interfacing (adhesive side down) to the wrong side of your choice of fabric. Then cut the excess fabric around the interfacing.
You can now use this simple fabric page for the back-side of your quiet book page.
For the purpose of this tutorial, we will be using two completed front-side quiet book pages: Forest Friends and Camping Tent. Whether you choose to use two completed front-side pages, or one completed front-side page and a simple fabric back-side, the following steps are the same.
Place both pages face up. Turn one page over.
Using Batting for Quiet Book Page Center
Gather a roll of polyester batting.
Cut a piece of batting size 9 x 9 inches.
Place batting on top of over-turned page.
Layering Quiet Book Pages
Place completed front-side quiet book page on top.
You should now have two quiet book pages, wrong sides together, with a piece of batting in between.
Sewing Back to Back Quiet Book Pages
Use wonder clips to hold the two pages together around the edges.
Use a sewing machine to sew the two pages together 1/4 inch in from the edge of the page with a straight stitch.
Now, if you turn your page over, you should have two quiet book pages sewn together to create one completed back to back quiet book page.
