As I started putting these pages together, I was pretty convinced it was going to be felty catastrophe. Fortunately, they turned out! These pages are my husband's favorite.
You can't really see, but I sewed little red beads for berries on the bush in the corner. I did it as an afterthought and I'm so glad I did! I've found the little details matter most in making these quiet books cute. Those little dinosaurs were so much fun to create! I have to thank my sisters for helping me pick which dinosaur pictures that I found on Google search would be the best to use. You can find those templates here, here, here, here and here. I reduced the sizes of each template to approximately 2.5-3 inches.
I made that little cave (and all the rocks) out of some textured felt I found at JoAnn's. Inside of it I made a little pocket to hold all the dinosaurs when they are not in use. It's definitely a tighter squeeze than I had imagined, but it works!
I found my inspiration for this page here.
