Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along – Day 2 GIVEAWAY

Welcome back, friends!

It’s Day 2 of our Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along. I am so excited to be sewing along with you! Today, we are attaching the roof to the front and back of the Dolls House, and applying batting. And, the softy dolls!  So, let’s get started! (Scroll down for the Dolls House Quiet Book Sew Along – Day 2 GIVEAWAY)

My 4 year old daughter helped pick out all the fabric for her Dolls House. This was a great opportunity for me teach her about matching colors! We both agreed that this red gingham was a good match for these prints. (Riley Blake Vintage Market, and Art Gallery Bits of Spring.) And, she was very proud of herself for her color-matching accomplishments 😉

We also decided to add a little embellishment on to her dolls house. A remnant of vintage eyelet lace along the roof line adds charm and creates the illusion of eaves. Not to mention, it is a great way to use up those scraps of lace, leftover from previous projects. You could use piping here as well, for a nice finished look. Try using a contrasting color for added interest and visual stimulation for your child.

Softy Dolly

This time around, I decided to give my softy Kitty a little something special. I happened to have this 15 in. length of ribbon laying around, looking for a purpose. It was the perfect length to make a cute little bow for Kitty. And, my daughter loves it!

BTW: This MODA cotton I used for the kitty is sooo soft. Perfect for snuggles <3

I wanted to make sure, the bow wouldn’t come off and get lost. So, I attached the ribbon to the back piece before sewing the kitty together.

And, to make sure the ribbon didn’t get caught in my seams while sewing, I pinned it down.

Then, sew the dolly per the pattern instructions. But, be careful of the pin when turning the dolly right side out. Ouch! Perhaps a safety pin would be better, lol! Either way, the bow turned out so stinkin’ cute. And, it’s great for little hands, learning to tie a knot. WIN <3

  1. Loving this ready! I am using some heavier cotton slightly canvas like for durability on the outside. I had plans to make a quiet book awhile ago (ok maybe when my middle child was a baby…so 2 years ago 😂) and bought it for that. Never did it, but kept the fabric and have tons! So I need to make three of these and there is plenty to go around!

  2. I am sewing this house as the pattern shows, but loving all the original ideas for other pages so my next one will probably be different.

  3. My daughter is excited to make the kitty this evening. I am pretty sure she won’t stop at just the kitty; we will have the whole animal family.

  4. I am sewing just the bare minimum as I have birthday projects on the go and also discovered mice in my back bedroom so that’s set me back a day! But I’m thinking I can add pages in the middle when I have some more time.

  5. I love that kitty fabric! In addition to a softy kitty, I plan to make a felt little lady with a wardrobe page containing outfit changes.

  6. I plan on sticking with the original pages but adding trims and details to each page. Maybe I’ll get more creative with future books though
